What is the frying pan grip? Is it like holding your raquet like side on?
Don't ask. That's like asking how to drive a car with your feet.
Well maybe he wants to know so that he can avoid it?!
Well yes I do want to avoid it, has anyone got a video of an example. I want to see because I am playing someone on thursday who I havnt played before but my mate has and he says he serves like it.
Ignore the other movements..just the swing and grip...i'll look for another one w/ better quality..

talking about frying pan...check this out...
huh...girl cleans up real nice...lol
Okay. Fair enough. Easy with the exclamation point. It startled me.
!!!!!!! Did those startle you a little? lol
Will someone answer his question already...
It's serving with an eastern grip... very 'wristy' and quite effective for lower levels...
But you'll max out on this type of serve... mechanics just ain't right... not to mention that it hurts the wrist over time...
Nothing beats the continental... unlimited potential on service swing speed...
Really funny... He assumed that the strings were the net XD
I'd say it's serving with a full western grip. That's how I hold a frying pan.
Becker served with an eastern grip. There's nothing wrong with that.
ok.. partial eastern.
Use frying pan grip, if you play tennis less twice a week. it is easier. no muscle memory or feel, it is hard to use eastern or continental grip.
lay the racquet on a table in front of you with handle towards you (i.e. just like a frying pan... =) ), and as naturally as possible pick it up. that's a frying pan grip. don't ever serve with this, except for fun to hit a screw ball serve. it's not natural and prone to injury, be careful.
Using the eastern grip on serve means you have the tendancy to hit it into the net because you're hitting down and flat.
