Also question is, how tight should you hold a tennis racquet?
You need to hold on tightly only from an instant before contact until just after most shots. If you squeeze hard during your entire swing, you’ll slow down the speed of the racquet head and restrict the amount of power you can generate. A loose grip as you prepare to hit is especially important on the serve.
