    I do wonder how correct is correct of your racket gripping. I mean, I thought I had the correct grip for the last 20 years, but hey, I was totally wrong. The difference of my gripping method of 20 years and the present one is so marginal. And my game has since been improving after the changed (of gripping) with no bump or pain at my fingers and no tiring of palm and arm. Best of all, u can feel the power when hitting a shot + accuracy + comfortable.

    Haha sorry, really late. Well what i do is hold the racket (at the bottom) with my pinky and ring finger. I use the rest for support.
    When i clear/smash/maybe drops, i losen up my grip a bit and on contact, grip hard so finger strength is applied. For drives and net play i just grip onto my racket, no loosening.
    Another thing is for me, i only hold my racket at the bottom like lin dan no matter what shot i play so the force applied is at max.
    Hope you get what im saying... haha

    oh...so holding the racket only with the pinky and the ring finger? this helps maximising power eh? so gotta try it out!

    Question Transfer of energy from fingers to the racquet with minimium wrist action.

    About one month ago, I've made a purchased of a heavy racquet for training purposes. An Apacs Training W140.
    At first, the thought of training with a heavy racquet would help to develop strength and hence, plays better. After using it for few times to play and train, I stopped using it because I just do not like it as it was too heavy. I gave up the idea of training for strength.
    Recently, I took it out again after few weeks. As usual, I'd do some strokes with it. Now that my racquet handling skills have improved a bit, I can feel the racquet better. Instead of swinging W140 with the usual way I did with my lighter racquet, I used the weight of the heavy racquet to swing fast while pivoting with my thumb and fingers (Index and middle). It occurred to me that a heavy racquet actually helped me gained a better understanding of how the speed can be generated from my wrist to fingers and then to the racquet.
    I think you might want to try get a heavy racquet to get the feel of the transferring of energy. I feel like using only the thumb and fingers to hold the racquet for action because of its weight. I think it might be the same for you. My grip is now very relaxed and I feel more confident in court. Go try it! Let me know what you think!

    just your nails. i tend to do that especially if i forget to cut them after a week or so. you can either trim them often (i put one nail clipper in my baddy bag) or put tape around your index finger.

    i prefer the former rather than the latter as i lose feedback if i tape my fingers

    i put a ring round my thumb cos it feels better, tho my nails are really short, but i do bite them
    which causes them to have little sharp bits. like a cerated knife.
