Hi, people often tell me that my penhold grip isn't good for tall players like me. So i have watched few matches between tall players(esp. European players) and most of them are using shakehold. Should i change my grip, and if so, how can shakehold grip benefit tall players?

Hi Jimmy,

Say with the penhold player if you feel comfortable with it.  I remember playing a player Zoran Kalinic who was a very tall penhold player that played in a World Team championships final.  He was very good so you can reach a high level with that style.
