Variation of the palm/hand placement for the Continental grip

In Photo Two the knuckle on the base of the index finger is in the same location, bevel 2, as it is in Photo One.  Still basically the Continental grip but the palm has moved to more of an Eastern backhand.  Changing the position of the palm moves the racquet head back which enables you to move the contact point forward. Now you can hit a powerful topspin backhand with the Continental grip that has the characteristics of an Eastern backhand. 

Photo One shows you the usual palm/hand placement for the Continental Grip used for the serve or slice . The knuckle on the base of the index finger is on bevel 2.  The fingers are wrapped around the beveled tip and asymmetrical ridge.  You can't see the Power -V- Grip in this photo but it has increased the size of this all important bevel improving the leverage and traction.
