There are a few solutions to that: Use wristbands to prevent sweat from going down your hand. Use high-quality moisture-absorbing overgrips. (Tourna grip comes to mind.) Use a rosin bag or a chalk bag. Both are similar products that will improve your grip. Use an antiperspirant lotion or gel.
If you prefer the feel of a synthetic or leather replacement grip, you can also increase your handle by half size or a full size by installing a heat-shrink sleeve. Available from Tennis Warehouse, these sleeves are easy to use and retain the handle’s bevels. To install a heat shink sleeve you will need:
But we actually change the grip by using our non-dominant hand, which turns the racquet by the appropriate amount of rotation so that it’s oriented correctly for the backhand grip. We simply let go of the racquet slightly with our dominant hand so that it can turn in the hand and then use our non-dominant hand to turn the racquet a bit.
Some players moved to an Eastern Grip on the forehand, but mostly, the ball was hit flat, with a slice or with side spin. Top-spin was rarely used, and it was hard to generate spin with the old school grips unless you were extremely strong players like Rod Laver, Illie Nastase and Tom Oker.
The semi-wester grip falls neatly between the eastern and western and has become the most common forehand tennis grip in modern tennis because it allows for excellent topspin and quick grip changes. In the 90s and into the new millennium, players like Andre Agassi and Martina Hingis put the semi-western grip to work.
Remember - a lot of factors determine how quickly a grip needs to be changed - humidity, the intensity of play, perspiration. A general rule you can follow is to replace your overgrip every 6-8 hours of play, and your replacement grip 1-3 times per year. Air out your racquets.
