Take a continental grip on the racquet and shift the hand in an anti-clockwise direction in such a way that the knuckle of the index finger gets placed at bevel 8. This is one of the easiest and versatile backhand grips in the game.
Pros: The eastern backhand grip encourages stability in the shots. The shot also has a great flexibility and adaptability and can be used as a strong grip for the kick serve too. The transition with this grip at the net for the volleys is also simple.
Cons: Solid control over the stroke on lower ball is possible, but the topspin and the roll over the balls are really very difficult with this grip. As a result the player is forced to bank upon the slice to play long rallies.
