first of all even during that era everyone was saying that sampras and edberg had "classic" backhand styles and everyone agreed sampras' bh was flawed.

guga has supination. he has the same finish as 1handers today. surprised you'd think otherwise. go look at any guga video.

here's a video of sabatini from 1993. same finish. this means she had that backhand form in the 80's. Does this look like the supination is an 'after thought'? please.
