I need some help with my wife's play. She is 29. I got her to go hit with me late this summer, and we have been hitting every weekend since. She feels most comfortable hitting one-handed forehands and backhands and has been improving. Her racquet is a Wilson N-code N-1... so it's light as hell, and not hard to wield. I noticed she has been choking up quite high on the handle. I asked her to TRY holding the racquet from lower on the handle (light most people do). She tried for maybe five minutes of play before saying she doesn't like it. I told her she needs to try it longer. I jokingly said the only people who choke up on racquets are 10 year olds. She got pissed at me and wouln't hit with me any more that day... I appologized and told her I didn't care if she choked up or not, as long as we could bond by playing together. We went back the next day to hit, and after our session she said tennis wasn't fun for her anymore, becasue I take it too seriously. What?!!??!! :-( My question is: Is it alright if she wants to continue playing by "choking up" on the handle? Should I continue to **** her off by asking her to change her grip or just let her be? I want to keep hitting with her, b/c she looks so damn cute in her workout clothes, it's great exercise, and most of all—it's fun.
