    Cool! I like mail.

    Yeah, for singles it's different, middle or end because you have much more time.

    No, he isn't. And that is exactly why he applies the grip on his racquet that way

    That's why I posted, "With respect to doubles..."

    I think LD should do it more neatly though. I'll be glad to do it for him. I like taping rackets, stringing them, etc...

    he should be able to get a non ugly solution to his griping habbit with ease..

    i heard he did this to teach himself to get control from holding the grip at the bottom. you get the best power from holding it here so if you can get the control as well... your sorted

    But if you think about it. they have been doing this way of griping for a WHILE now, for their level of skill and training frequency.. it wouldn't be too much to assume they've long passed the "teaching" period.
    Shouldn't they have already adpoted to this gripping style as natural and be able to do it without the uglyless as a reminder?

    i suppose it could also be that because he has mastered it by now he just doesnt want to waste towel grip

    will it make the racket feel more or less head-heavy?

    more?
    mmmm interesting, i guess they have plently of wrist and finger power for net kills so that gripping at the bottom isn't a problem in those situations..
