I don't like the idea of having to change grips constantly and may cause me more errors.
I am having problems hitting cross court with a Semi-Western though. Do you hit the ball even farther out front than normal?
Eastern's cool too. I would say that if you're really going to try out a grip then you have to give it a couple of weeks with some wall or ball machine sessions and just hitting groundies with a buddy to see if it's really something you want to try
. If you decide to go with it then you'll have to commit to it and learn the idiosyncrasies.
