Doesn't it stand to reason his grip is closer to E, rather than strong SW's?
We gotta pay attention to the special attributes of the player's we're analysing.
I took lessons from a guy that was 6 foot 2 and had a similar grip. I'm six feet tall and use a similar grip. As has been stated many times, some smaller WTA players uses flatter strokes and have similar grips.

I've seen a lot of of old guys that are five eight and five nine that use similar grips. If you understand the concepts of your strike zone, taking the ball early, and moving back when necessary it won't be a problem.

Federer is what? 6 foot 2? on his forehand his hand is more behind the handle than under it. His backhand grip is dare I say it? almost traditional? It's about the same as Sampras, but a little more extreme than a guy like Edberg.
