Hi my name is Michael McMahon. I've been playing tennis a long time. I've tried to use different forehand shots within the same point or game. For instance, using the semi-western grip on one shot and then western on the next shot. But it was very difficult to be consistent when I switched grips on consecutive shots. I then tried to do this on old-style rackets with the very small head. I found it far easier to be consistent using multiple grip positions on the same side. I could use eastern one point and then western on the next without any negative effect. I also found it easier to hit inside-out shots. I think it helps because the smaller head size forces you to hit very close to the center of the racket making it more accurate. On topspin grips I placed my hand midway up the handle to short-grip it in order to make it lighter. What do you think?
