Hi, pingskills. I recently watched the world youth championships and saw yuna ojio gripping the racket in a very strange way and she seems to have good success with it. What do you think are the pros and cons of that grip?

Hello Jasper!

Yuna Ojio is an incredible player and her grip is unique. I haven't really tried playing with this grip for any period of time.  I believe that the pros of using this grip are that it gives her better control and accuracy as it provides the best spin and flat hitting control. This grip also allows for a more consistent angle of attack and blocking accuracy. The cons of this grip are that it can be quite difficult to learn, and usually takes more time to learn as compared to more common grips. It can also be more restrictive for attacking shots, as the angle of attack may become limited. Ultimately, it is up to the individual player to decide whether a certain grip works for them or not.
