    1 - 10 scale what grip pressure do high level players have. On the serve I probably have a grip pressure of 2. Volley probably 7-8, Backhand is about a 6. I'm wondering what the school of thought is today.

    I"m closer to a 4 on 1hbh backhands, a little less for slice..
    Volleys around 5, but putaways off a high ball like yours.
    Serves mostly 1-2.
    Forehands vary on incoming ball's depth and what I'm doing. Rally balls, maybe a 3. Winner/pass attempts, expecially off a deep ball, maybe 7.
