I've heard of holding a loose grip on the racquet when swinging. And I just couldn't get it. How do you hit hard with a loose grip? But I was recently hitting with my daughter and was focussing on hitting into her strike zone. I had a relaxed grip as I didn't feel the need to crush the ball back to her like I have to with my son. But then I started working on my own full swing and found myself holding the grip with only my fingers, thumb, index finger palm "pad" and the palm area just beyond outside of my wrist. The rest of my hand was barely in contact with the grip. This is with SW grip. I felt like I had an, "ah-ha" moment. I felt a very natural and easy swing would yield quite a good trajectory with spin. I started to put more behind it and the ball speed just increased but the arc of the ball looked the same. Best of all, there was no jarring felt through my wrist or elbow. It was as if the jarring was absorbed by my fingers. The racquet would finish more complete instead of my stopping the racquet short like I typically do. Am I on the right path?
