What are the different ways in which the Shakehand grip can be modified in doing the pendulum and other spin serves? Thank you.
For the Pendulum serve, you take the 3 fingers from around the handle and place them behind the handle. This releases the grip and allows you to utilise your wrist in a bigger range of movement which will also enable you to increase the spin on the serve.
For other serves, you can relax the grip slightly to again allow greater movement of the wrist. Usually it is by relaxing the grip around the handle with the little finger and ring finger.
