It is pretty easy for anyone to learn to put some top spin on the forehand. In fact, with a SW grip, it would be difficult not to.
Not worth all these discussions when the player is likely to be limited by other factors.
Tell that to Federer and Nadal who will run to the outside of the backhand doubles ally to hit a forehand, and who would hit only forehands for an entire match, if they could.
