Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 2. March 16, 1938

Grips

Grips.

The South Australian uses the "Eastern" grip of the racquet. Incidentally, be took five racquets out to Miramar with him. A peculiarity of his back hand had interested "Salient" during the exhibition. Questioned. Quist said that it was merely for the sake of added steadiness that he kept his left hand in support on the racquet handle until just before the moment of impact. V. B. McGrath, of course, does not withdraw the left hand at all, but firmly grasps the racquet handle with it when executing his now welllknown doublehanded backhand.

Quist obligingly posed for a quick photo, the five racquets under his arm; then, a friendly handshake and his attractive smile, and he was wending his sturdy way to the dressing shed.

"Salient" wishes Quist and his companions good luck and good health in their quest for the Davis Cup. In the absence of an entry from New Zealand, we hope it may go to Australia, although it will be hard to make it budge.
