[tennisbiz] Re: Questions about gripping the racket?
<x-charset ISO-8859-1>Too much grip strength at contact can not only disrupt the
ability for the string bed to allow the ball to compress at
contact, takes the natural body weight out of the shot, and
most importantly, I really belive that most tennis elbow
problems are caused by "the death grip".

Just be sure your speakers are on...
I teach my students to "not fight the ball at contact" and to
simply believe there is no need for strength at the contact
point as a major event.
