Serena Williams' backhand grip: what is it??

I'm having a hard time telling what grips (both hands) she uses on her backhand. Does anyone know for sure or have a pretty good guess? Thanks for any help!!

I think she use universial grip, but at some points she changes her grip position to hit a speciel shot.

Serena Personal quotes - "I'm afraid I'm already a shopaholic. Fortunately, I'm no longer in denial, and the first step to recovering is getting out of denial."... Work it girl"

I think Serena uses a continental grip with her right hand, and a slightly semi-western grip with her left hand.

Proves what you know, Serena doesn't even use two hands. She can pop a hamburger in her mouth like a lifesaver using only one hand. Next time you're watching her eat from behind the McDonald's sells counter, pay attention. Isn't it part of your job to keep an eye on the customers anyway? I'd like to have your manager's number please, he needs to know his employees are slacking off.
