Get it? Open like Sampras/Hewitt or closed like Rios? pros cons? See, i tend to close it too much, for too long resulting in more of a push to the ball rather than getting the full backscratch. Now i will try to "force" it a bit the other way to see how it goes... I can throw a ball far etc, but give me a tennisracket and i mess it up Someone thought me the wrong thing when i was a kid.
