Hi guys; ive got a question here;i was wondering if any of today pros lets say top 200 use an open (continental or eastern) on their forehand??


As far as i know federer (off course) and younes el aynaoui also does but who else???

Thanks

nobody uses continental for forehands. if anyone posts a picture of a pro using a continental grip it's a picture of the player volleying or hitting a slice backhand. a few players use the extreme eastern grip, none that i know of use the old style pure eastern grip that sampras used. maybe bjorkman.

Watching the Rogers' Cup match last night of Stepanak v. Lopez the tv commentators remarked that Stepanak uses a Continental grip on his forehand.......
