williams - get some touch

have u guys noticed how serena feeds her opponent with smashes during the warm up?
normally players do it with a slice grip, she does with a forehand grip

it is symbolic for how little touch and feeling the williams sisters have?

also the rackets they are playing with - they are rackets for amateurs/hobby players - none of the male players play with those rackets

How about worry less about the willaims grips and more about whats going on in your life that you have time to notice that..... also im sure noone ele uses their rackets on eiter tour b/c wilson wants it that way and probably gears both of their rackets to the unique playing style. As someone whos played with both of their rackets i can tell you that they arent even remotelly the same.

If you knew ANYTHING AT ALL about tennis, you would know that players don't use a "slice grip" when feeding overheads and Venus and Serena DON'T REALLY USE the H4 and H6. Just paintjobs of them to endorse the racquets

not sure but probably some discontinued Wilson models from the late 90's.

I know from a friend that Serena's raquet is most probably specially tailored to her requests, coz he bought the raquet Serena "uses" and it was a lot smaller in head size, and he thought Serena had a much larger head size than the ones available for sale.

Andre Agassi also does this, and I'm sure a few other players do aswell

All players except probably Kim and the Babolat players do it.
