He forehand drop shot was just poetry in motion. Does he change grip to continental when he hits it?

I believe so. You can see him change it at the last possible moment on slow-motion replays.

On a couple of them, it looked like he took the racquet back with a Continental grip, obviously intending to hit the dropper all along. On others, it looked like he shifted grips, meaning maybe he made a late decision.
