Currently on the professional tour...Nobody that I can think of. The continental grip for forehand groundstrokes, at least on the men's tour, pretty much disappeared after Stefan edberg retired. In my opinion Leander Peas could pull it off, but I'm pretty sure he hits his topspin forehands with an eastern grip. Johnny Mac on the seniors tour however still employs a pretty good topspin/flat continental forehand. I can name plenty of other great players like Ilie Nastase, Rod Laver, Tom Okker, John Newcombe, Tony Roche etc... that had great topspin continental forehands...but since those aren't "modern" names I feel that you're just going to ignore them.
