Re: Question's about Venus and Serena
So many player use open stance. Closed stance is good cause you get really good shoulder rotation.
I know Sharapova plays closed stance on both sides.
Open stance is good to use cause you can get into position for the next shot almost immediately. I'm not sure of the otehr benefits, but I play open stance forehand (lefty) and most of the time open on backhand, but can do both closed and open.
As for grip, I was always under the intention that they've used Semi-Western. But that's been asked so many times on this board and no one really knows!
Venus Williams. Serena Williams.
