What grips do you use on your strokes?

So little activity here.

These are my grips:

Two-handed backhand - Continental on the dominant hand, eastern on the other hand
Forehand - Semi-western
Serve - Continental

For slices and volleys, I try to keep continental on both wings but I rarely do this and I'm crap at both.

What do you use?

Re: What grips do you use on your strokes?

My backhand grips are the same as yours. Forehand is between an eastern and a semi-western I'd say.
Serve: continental.

I'm not used to crying. . . . It's a little difficult. All my life I've had to fight. It's just another fight I'm going to have to learn how to win, that's all. I'm just going to have to keep smiling.-Serena Williams

Does anyone serve without using a continental grip? At least anybody that should know better...
