different grips with nadal

does anyone know if Nadal uses different grips when playing on different surfaces. For e.g. a semiwestern grip on grass or hard- while a full western on clay. If so can i see pictures or videos.


thanks

Re: different grips with nadal

I remember reading an article with a small interview with Nadal not so long ago and he mentionned practicing a different grip for other surfaces than the one he uses on clay.
(it's my guess that he's still working on it, trying to get used to different grips for different surfaces)


Video's or pictures? Sorry, maybe somebody else can help you out.
