It''s not like a forehand can only be hit to the ad court - you can hit a forehand to the deuce court as well.
Nadal's inside out forehand doesn't have nearly the same high-kicking topspin as his crosscourt forehand does. Besides, the crosscourt forehand is the safer, higher-percentage shot. That's why he didn't hit that many inside out forehands to Zaballos' backhand.
