How are people defining eastern bh grip? I've always defined the modern eastern bh grip as having the index knuckle on bevel 1 (or the top bevel).

Using that definition, it seems to me that Verdasco holds a continental when serving as seen in this video:

Djokovic holds more like an eastern bh but I'd define it as either an eastern bh cheated towards continental or a continental cheated towards eastern bh. The pure eastern bh just seems quite rare from my study of video.
