Hi guys

Could you please do a video response on the thumb and forefinger pressure for the forehand and backhand. A lot of information suggests a movement of the thumb on the forehand side.

Hi Aaron,

Try to keep the grip reasonably similar on both sides.  On the backhand sometimes you can put your thumb up a little for more stability.

Whatever movement happens, it needs to be something that you can do very quickly when changing between the two sides.
