Thanks for the responses soo far guys!!
My plan was......................... topspin serve kickers to his backhand mostly (Be surprised if he got much cut into those), and then playing aggressive crosscourt forehands towards his forehand side and trying to finish at the net when the chance arises!
In saying that, I like the idea of being forceful to his backhand and net-rushing. My Spanish friend suggested toppy forehands to his forehand side too...... so that sounds good.
His grips are conti on backhand for sure, but he does drive the forehand.....Whereas I don't know his forehand grip, I'm pretty sure it'll be conti'ish.
