He did it all of the time... BTW Edberg and Stan the Man have the same BH grip (Guga too). That particular type of backhand stroke can generate the most ridiculous amount of spin and power and it is very stable. Also it gives the player more options/disguise than a forehand and he likely built his game around it. That is why it is a good idea for him to run around his forehand. It is his goto for good reason.
