    Which grips she was using on FH and BH? I need the grips on both sides for both hands. Thanks




    I would be happy if someone could help me.

    I found this thread from 2006 https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/monica-seles-stroke-mechanics.77923/

    The user @Jack Romeo then said

    I think this seems more or less right. The backhand looks like a fairly normal left-handed 2hbh. The forehand is obviously a bit strange because of the arms being in the opposite order to a typical two-handed shot.

    Seles did have some amazing disguise.

    If you watch some of her classic matches against Graf, many times after hitting multiple shots to Graf's BH, she will catch Graf off-guard with a winner to Graf's FH side. Graf sometimes acts as if she didn't see it coming...

    It looks to me like SW forehand/continental backhand on both sides, just reversed hands for opposite sides.
