    the video says he's "conquered" his foot injury that put his career on the line

    When he finishes a forehand in the video, it seems his grip is Semi Western rather than Western. Has he changed it for hard courts?

    I'm pretty sure that he uses western, but after seeing the video again it does look like he was holding a semi-western grip when he finshes. I will try to found some photos of it.

    after he won 15 GS ;)
    seriously, I think in 3 years, Fed will do a Sampras and focus on the GS and not on his Nr. 1 ranking anymore, then it's time for Nadal to step it up!
    Saying that, I would like to see the youngsters challenging Fed from this point on. Nadal can have all the FO's he wants, as long as Fed wins it once in his career!

    well, the scenario allow Nadal to be no.1 in the age of 24-25.
    In the terms of 3 years, Federer will tied Sampras' GS records (2 GS/yr). so when that's happen, Federer will be 27-28. He still have 2 yrs till 30. I predict this '2 years' time will be the crucial moment to Nadal, is he capable to seize hegemony from Fed or there will be another youngsters to slip in.
