Hey everyone, I'm hoping you guys and gals can offer some advice. I have been playing tennis for nearly 3 years but am still struggling to decide what grip to use on my forehand. When I use a semi-western to western grip I can hit a lot of top spin which allows me much larger margin for error (both net clearance and baseline depth). Naturally I have to hit quite far in front which is fine when warming up etc however problems arise when playing properly. I just don't seem to have the time to set up the shot correctly. I still manage to generate fairly decent spin with an eastern grip but the ball trajectory is far lower. When trading heavy forehands with an opponent I sometimes struggle to keep the ball in play and under control. I feel I really need to make my mind up on which grip to use so I can progress further as switching between them will surely hold me back. My coach feels I should just stick with the eastern but I do wonder if what is partly because he plays with an eastern grip. One thing I will say, switching from forehand to backhand with an eastern grip is easier as I have a near continental right hand (DHBH) grip. Is there something more fundamental I should be looking at or is it just a case of practise practise practise? Did anyone go through a similar issue? Thanks for any advice in advance (long time reader, first time poster).
