Hello, So, I had a little question with my serving grip.. So, I self taught myself to serve with a continental grip, and I learned it through instructions on the internet and photos... However, my serve (working on just hitting kick serves/topspin serves) aren't as consistent as I would like them to be.. I originally learned the continental grip to be index knuckle on 2nd bevel and heel pad on second bevel. However, after some frustration with many double faults, I ended up experimenting and moving the bottom of the racket up some (palm up with grip upside down). Sorry, I don't have photo capabilities at the moment, but I'll try to clarify. When I hold my continental grip upside down so that I face my palm, I move the racket counter-clockwise, so that the bottom moves more towards my pinky knuckle. The end result is almost all of the knuckles line up on the 2nd bevel. With this grip, I found that I hit a lot more consistently, as I was able to develop the feel of brushing up on the ball where, at contact, my racket was more horizontal (view of brushing with the mains straight up) than vertical.. Now, I was wondering if there were any major problems with continuing like this, and would it ruin my serve later on, or limit the potential of my serve. If so, how would I go about correcting it? I find so much more consistency with this serve than having the heel pad and index knuckle on the bevel. I ask, because, a while back, I asked a similar question here about my forehand stroke, where if I almost lined my knuckles on the fourth bevel instead of knuckle and heel pad, I was able to get more consistency by adding more topspin, through, again, more of a brushing up while the racket is horizontal... However, I was told to "forget the crap with the knuckles" and "learn the grip the right way" or it would ruin me later on.. And one last thing: As I continued to experiment, I found that when I kinda pushed in a little with my index knuckle area right prior to contact into contact, I was able to get a little more on my serve and a little more consistency. Does this indicate any problems with my stroke? I'd appreciate as much information on this subject as possible. Thanks in advance for responses.
