Oh my goodness this is THE grip for serves!! I was playing a match this weekend and during the warm-ups I decided to use this grip to serve, since my opponent was going to be practising returning my serve and I didn't want him to practise returning my flat serve. First time using this grip and I whack this topspin serve down the T. It just clicked. The funny thing is I could REALLY give the ball my all, and it would still go in. I have never hit an ace against this opponent and I hit 4 during the match and also got a number of errors of the serve. First match in a while where I wasn't worried sick about holding serve. I especially enjoyed the slice serve to the corner that 'ran away' (his words not mine) from my opponent. On an unrelated note, I have a question about stance for return of serve. I stand angled into the court i.e on the deuce court, my right foot is further up then the left. On the ad court, sometimes it will be the exact same stance, or perfectly horizontal. Is this normal?
