I want to hear from a professional coach if this grip is safe for me to use as I been taught pronation. I have three serves, Flat, slice, and topspin. I was taught to use the eastern for hitting flat serves with, volleying and overheads. With eastern I am finding the ball just sits up too much and with eastern I have to toss the ball way out in front for a flat serve, as it don't work well with the ball toss for the slice or topspin serve. My coach put me on eastern for learning to pronate the ball flat. That grip brings the ball down on the court too steep, the problem with that is this, it tends to drop in short at times and sit up with the high bounce... But I want to change the grip now over to the Continental for hitting my flats with in order to flatten the ball more to get rid of this short serve sitting up problem that the eastern is giving me from time to time. Even in the volleys I am finding the eastern a real pain to work with, it tends to chop too much down on the ball instead of going through the ball, since the eastern tilts the stringbed up more higher in the hand when the wrist is laid back and with the eastern it seems the wrist can't lay the racquet back as far as with the continental, so eastern locks the wrist with the tip of my racquet pointing upward at a 45 degree angle and that is making the ball chop down on it too steep during the volley, so it only seems to be good if you are close up near the net to use this grip to volley with. So what will the continental grip do for the volley?
