John Yandell

Printable Version

Which Grip is Right?

A range of moderate grips from Eastern to mild Semi-Western are far and away the most effective for the vast majority of players from beginners to high level NTRP and tournament competitors. In this second article I outline that range, the precise check points for all the variations, and talk about why this range correlates best with technique for players below the pro level.

What if you are a beginner? What if you already have an extreme grip? What about stances and finish variations? Here is a detailed take on all of these questions!

John Yandell is widely acknowledged as one of the leading videographers and students of the modern game of professional tennis. His high speed filming for Advanced Tennis and Tennisplayer have provided new visual resources that have changed the way the game is studied and understood by both players and coaches. He has done personal video analysis for hundreds of high level competitive players, including Justine Henin-Hardenne, Taylor Dent and John McEnroe, among others.

In addition to his role as Editor of Tennisplayer he is the author of the critically acclaimed book Visual Tennis. The John Yandell Tennis School is located in San Francisco, California.
