I don't know if i do it, as i haven't really thought about how i hit my backhand too much, it's one of my best grounds strokes.
it's a way of closing the face. you can have it 'set' or 'active' during the stroke. if it's active then it's what you would use to get a little extra brush on the ball.

go to virtualtennisacademy.com. free sign up. watch the backhand vids. heath goes into depth on it there. if you're too lazy to enter your email then you can watch the sample vid on the main page. the 'extreme topspin bh' vid.
