When Federer hits this forehand from inside the service line, does he change from his Eastern to Continental grip?:

Note:
Will from FYB has mentioned that Federer uses the same forehand grip on the thousands of clips he has examined, so I presume he keeps the Eastern grip even for short balls like this.
At 1.20 you'll see Fed change his grip with his fingers.
What's the reason your coach mentioned gripchange to continental.
