I was interested to read in the new Wilson racquet review that Granville misses his old grip shape. I saw Laver interviewed a few years ago, and he was asked about players who pull out a new racquet with each ball change. The Great One responded that once he came upon a racquet with a grip that felt right, he used it until it broke. Nothing makes for well controlled shots as much as a firm grip; it's the reason I tend to wander back to Prince, which seems to fit me perfectly. Players on this board sometimes seem a little too cavalier about buying a racquet with a grip that feels all wrong (Head and Volkl leap to mind) and then trying to fix it.
