In this photo, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga prepares to hit his powerful forehand in a mostly open stance. With any grip from Eastern
used for a topspin forehand, the racquet face will be closed (face downward) somewhat on the backswing; the more western the grip, the more closed. With Tsonga's roughly Semi-Western
grip, the racquet face should be quite closed, although not necessarily as closed Jo-Wilfried's is here; individual style and arm structure have an effect.
