    Is it possible that when you apply an overgrip(wilson pro) that the overgrip is stickier indoors than out? Because that is the impression I had yesterday when I was playing outside.

    The only reason i can think you feel this way is because there is more dirt and grime outdoors, and when the ball picks up the dirt particle(s) they got onto your hand, which in turn gets onto your grip, causing it to lose it's "tack" faster.

    there could also be a temperature and humidity difference. outdoors, it may be hot or humid (or even both) and thus, making you sweat more. if the indoor courts were air conditioned and were dryer than outside, it would probably make the grip tackier.
