Hi. When I am playing, I have my thumb gripping the bat in the centre of the forehand rubber (where the logo is). I just noticed the other day that most of the other players have theiir thumb gripping near the top of the handle. I tried playing like this, but I couldn't move my wrist the way that I wanted to on backhand strokes. This is also the reason why when playing with someone else's bat, I found the blade to dig into my hand(between thumb and index finger) yet he had never had that problem. And, on my forehand rubber (Andro Plasma), I have developed a dark patch where my thumb is (not just on the surface of the topsheet). Does anyone have any answer to whether or not this is the wrong way to hold my bat, or if there any pros and cons compared to having the thumb on the top of the handle? Thanks.
