However it is likely that in some weeks-months I will come back

In the meantime I write this short post :

if my memory is right the first "two-handed backhand" player who won a Slam tourney
was
Vivian Erzerum Bede McGrath who took the 1937 Australian amateur crown

(this tournament was a very depleted event because all the pros (Vines, Nüsslein, Perry, Tilden, ...) were forbidden to enter and many top amateurs didn't came (Budge, Cramm, Austin, Henkel, Riggs, ...)
It may be depleted but it still is a major so I believe you are correct.
