    Anyone know what grip he is using on his left hand? Looks eastern to me.

    I think it's semi-western. I originally thought it was semi-western, then extreme eastern. At least from looking at his slo-mo on youtube. Apparently he'll also put the left hand on western from time to time.

    yes. 10 char.

    Nalbandian has a great backhand and a solid forehand. When is he EVER going to put it together for a full year??? ARGH!

    Well, he got rid of the donut shop he was carrying around, so he has no excuses because he's certainly one of the best 5 players in the world when he's fit.
