Which grip do u prefer or use?

Which grip do u guys prefer 2 use? Just curious:

I would prefer 2 use a semi-western grip but mostly i'm comfortable with an eastern grip.

Any thoughts?

Re: Which grip do u prefer or use?

I generally play with an easter grip, but I have no problems switching over to extreme western for added spin when needed.

Re: Which grip do u prefer or use?

I never understood the diff grips...

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Semi-western. I've used both Eastern and Western grips before though, on my round-about journey to my present-day grip .
