Get a Grip

Service Grips

The continental grip promotes hand action and spin on the serve. The fingers are less spread than on the eastern forehand, and the butt of the racquet can actually be placed within the palm. Rod Laver served with the continental grip.

The eastern backhand grip promotes even more hand action and pronation, greater spin and disguise. Pancho Gonzalez served with the eastern backhand.

Volley Grips

The continental grip works for both the forehand and backhand, and produces a nice underspin shot.
