    Pretty sure Djokovic uses a full western grip and I think Nadal does too, though some people say Nadal's is in between semi-western and western.

    roddick and djoker use western.
    Nadal definitely uses semi western because with a straight arm forehand and the whippiness of his wrist, his wrist would break if he used a western. and photos prove it.

    Andy is extreme semi-western for sure.
    Novak is western, so is Nadal.
