it's nothing too extraordinary, it's supination.

Fed does this, Stan does this.

every bh he hits, his racket tip points to the back fence.

Dimi just happened to do that one quite violently.
Yes we all know it's supination. Nothing new. I'm pretty sure all the regulars here with a 1hbh are using supination. I"ve been doing that since I was a kid. I just don't end up with the racquet head on my back. Nobody else does either except dimitrov.

I wouldn't recommend him as a model for the 1hbh. Almagro, Stan, haas and even fed are better models to try to emulate.
