Dear Rippa and dear Ray,

i write you for ask an important question..


sorry for my english..

in the last year i'have change seriously my swing becouse i have understand how is the proper stroke..

..and sometime the swing it's very good and i feel the ball very good, but sometime i don't feel the same sensation...


i have read every post about the wrist and the swing, but i don't find my i ask you...


the problem is my wrist...i've read that the grip, the modern grip is firm but not rigid, is relaxed..but some time seems to me that i use to much this way i use less my arms...i think you undestand what i try to explain...

so i think the problem is my low grip in the handle on the racket...i have noticed that if i take my grip a little bit in the middle of the handle, i use less wrist and more my forehand...but sometime i feel less the ball than the grip lower...


so can you help me for this problem...the squash is my life and when i feel this problem i'm very frustated becouse i donì't know what is the change the grip?


my grip is like "english" grip, i the "v" from the thumbs and first finger is a little bit on the left on the handle of the racquet...

in your opinion, what i can do for this problem...change the grip? keep the wrist cocked?

change my swing?

can you help me please? for me is very important this thing..

thanks again rippa and ray for your attention and your precious teaching

Paolo - it sounds as though you have problems similar to any new or inexperienced player.  There are many things that could contribute to your problems, eg footwork when moving to hit the ball, distance from the ball when striking the ball, wrist movement when striking the ball, use of the knees/lung, etc.  There is a menu tab listed under Squashgame Gold/Troubleshooting and that might give you some helpful ideas.  Sorry to harp on this but if you want Raystrach and Rippa Rit to view your play there is only one way and that is via e-coach.  The system is working well providing you can get a very small video clip of your play and attach the file.
