    Yeah, that looks pretty perfectly semi-western to me. But that is a pretty cool picture though. Witht he flattened out ball and everything, not quite as cool as the Federer one though ;)

    Wow you are the most observant and witty poster I've ever seen. :p

    Staying on topic, when Blake's forehand is on, it's a thing of beauty. Grip definitely looks like a SW.

    James strings with poly at 70lbs or up and the string is still pulled back so much...

    I heard that he uses a full luxilon stringjob. Damn 70lb is a little extreme. No wonder why he hits it so flat
