Why do they all like the Semi-western?
My son recently attended one week's tennis camp at Evert Tennis academy. He had a great time there. However, the coaches there told him that he should change his grip from western to semi-western. They mentioned that all their boarding students are required to change from a western grip in the first week there and saty away from tournaments for 6 months. These guys sure all heard of Nadal and Courrier and the other western grip holders, right? Is it just a personal preference or is there more to it?
