Professionals players and their racket grips
I saw two thread who speak grips of professional players :
- A Lin Dan's grip
- A Lee Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat's grips
So, I had an idea, we can make a thread to explain how the pros are putting their grip and what grip they use.
We have already got Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat's grip, why not do the same for others? :
- Koo Kien Keat
- Tan Boon Heong
- Peter Gade
- And many others
Hoping you like it

No offence, but why bump this thread if you're the only one posting in it?

okay, let me start you off,
as far as I can tell TBH just wraps a normal overgrip, starts with the sticky-tape and ends with the normal finishing tape, wraps it up the cone and then stops. Nothing special.
KKK wraps a white overgrip and starts at the 'other end' like LCW, but leave a part 'hanging over the cone', maybe he even wraps 1-2 times around the buttcap before he starts gripping further down. Ends with the sticky tape like LCW, again, not so special.
PG wraps a towelgrip up to the cone, maybe he put some tape on the buttcap to make it bigger, I can't tell.
Now my question is, why does it matter? Find a way to grip your racket so you feel comfortable with it, how it looks or what the pro's do shouldn't really matter...

It's just another way of asking for advice.
Additionally, over the years the professionals will probably have been helped by coaches to find the best grip style/material etc. and it'd be nice for those who don't have direct access to international coaches to get some hints or new things to try etc.

And you can always try a method out, won't hurt you, if it isn't good you just move back to you're own grip.

For example, I had never thought of the LCW method for trapping the start of an overgrip under itself until I read about it

No I understand, but it won't hurt to try it anyways, cuz I think the LCW method looks more neat then the normal one.
