I have a question about Pete's backhand. Ive heard that Sampras used an eastern backhand grip. I personally use an eastern backhand grip with the base knuckle at the top of the handle. I find it hard to believe that Pete used an eastern backhand because he hit with a bent elbow. Considering he used a 2 handed backhand in his younger days, I believe that Pete Fischer neglected to change Sampras' grip over from continental to eastern backhand grip during the switch. Does Pete use an eastern backhand or a continental backhand?
