Grip Change "Workout" ... While Watching Tennis on TV ... (YouTube match highlights are best)

PROCESS: Sit upright in your chair with Ready-Position grips ... and your racquet head dead center.

On serving games aimed towards "you" (the camera) ... and the dominant hand gripped very loosely ... every time the serve goes to the backhand ... pull the racquet head towards your backhand side with the non-dominant hand ... as IT torques the racquet to the appropriate dominant hand backhand bevel ... and the dominant hand ... which took no real "action" on its own ... merely grips the handle tighter when there.

What do you mean?
Holding the top of the handle with your non dominant hand, let your unit turn to BH side rotate the handle in your loose dominate hand, so the grip change happens passively, you merely tighten your hand once the handle is in the right spot as you are turning.

The idea is to practice the grip change when triggered by the sight of the ball going to the backhand side. So ... when the server (who is serving towards you on TV) serves a ball to the backhand ... you practice immediately changing to your backhand grip ~ MG

and if you don't change grips?

Once you have mindfully practiced thousands of these little grip changes when triggered by visual cues ... the grip change becomes so fast and automatic ... that no matter how fast a ball is coming at you in a real court situation ... there will pretty much always be enough time to accomplish it ~ MG
