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?

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

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

Semi-Western most of the time. Sometimes Eastern though.

Eastern for all shots except topspin backhand and volleys.

eastern:)
it gives you more control of the shots, you can hit very flat and with topspin when needed, it's good for aggressive style of play:)

I use semi-western, but my coach tries all the time to change it to eastern :p

semi western is the best forehand grip.lots of top spin and u can hit flat when u want.its easy to keep topspin in the court when using this grip too

i tend to use semi-western but a little while ago i used an extreme western grip and i still do when im under pressure.

i cannot use an eastern grip at all which is weird because thats the grip i started with when i first started playing. now when i use it, the ball just goes flying up in the air :lol:
