    Just out of curiosity...

    I think he uses a Semi-Western forehand grip, and an Extreme Eastern backhand grip. Anyone think differently?

    I've heard his forehand is like an extreme eastern or something, not sure though.

    Rumor has it he is switching to a Hawaiian for Roland Garros so he can rip Nadal's moonballs.
