I have always served/volleyed/OH with a conti grip. I'm always trying to do everything right though things don't always pan out the way I envision. Where the problem's standing right now (if I speed up too much) it's a shallow racket drop and the timing, ie I'm not used to a larger toss/swing yet. Probably just like a very compact FH when most of us started out. (A compact, shorten backswing isn't technically wrong. It's just a bit weakened, imo)
was always a "go to net to shake hands" kind a guy.
