How you choose to hold the racquet as a habit has great effect on your stoke itself and it ultimately has a large impact on your game. Following are the basic grips:
To have an effective forehand, you must be able to hit balls in all parts of the strike zone. The eastern and semiwestern are the most common, versatile and powerful options overall.
Using the proper grip pressure is important, regardless of your grip. Holding the grip too tightly, a common problem, will restrict your flexibility and tire you out. Keep your hand relaxed between shots and let the racquet do the work for you.
