federers forehand

i have been trying to learn how to hit a killer forehand like fed, by watching lessons showing him, however i understand it all, but i dont know what grip he uses, if anyone knows, reply.
thanks
 
Mild Semiwestern. Right between Eastern and SW.

Sometimes, you see footage of him with a clear strong Eastern grip. Other times it's more towards a SW, or usually right in between.

So it's around there.

go to tennisone.com it has footage of all the pros strokes. on the quicktime player or whatever it uses you can slow the video by manually moving the bar across slowly. fed uses eastern but towards sw
 
Instead of tennisone, if you want videos go to tennisplayer.net.

Lot more high quality footage. And you can still go frame by frame through it. Plus you get the articles on Federer's forehand as well.
