    Coria hits with a Western grip. Or "Extreme Semi-Western" as you like to call it.

    mathieu uses a western as does grosjean and nadal. and coria definitely doesn't hit with western. he'es a bit off semi such as marat, ancic, gonzo, and verdasco. also, agassi uses the same grip as fed and gasquet. you can also add hewitt to your "extreme semi-western" list as you so call it. search..........i've posted pics of all these guys' grips not too long ago.
