Default Do any high level servers use Eastern BH grip for serve?

I have heard that an eastern backhand grip can be used on the serve to gain some spin and consistency. I've tried it out briefly, and it did seem to help. I can't, however, find one pro using the grip.

Federer clearly using a continental

Roddick with continental

If these top level servers aren't doing it, it doesn't seem like I should adopt it. Do you think any pros use this grip?
