Is it common, do you see it as well?
What do you mean 'inflate' their grips? As in semi-western is somehow better
or 'cooler' than eastern? And Hawiian trumps all? So people lie about how extreme their grips are?
The guy probably just didn't know he was using an eastern, or maybe a conservative semi-western like Agassi?
