Hi Alois and Jeff,   I’ve  seen lots of your impressive videos that mention the need to have a loose grip of the racket - are there any occasions where’s there a need to have a tight grip of the racket.  Michael

Hi Michael,

I think in general the loose grip is vital.

The only occasion may be when you are forcing a block you can tighten your hand a little.  The other time is if you are playing with long pimples you may need to vary the tension in your hand for various shots to either relax for absorb a fast ball or tighten slightly to force a softer ball.
