i think it's a deliberate attempt to try and get the racket through the strike zone more horizontally to increase depth and create a full stroke every time. his grip is pretty far under the racket (western) and he's definitely been a bit of a 'slapper' with the forehand at times. pointing the racket back so conspicuously might be helpful to help keep a 'full swing' thought in mind, rather than just ripping up the back of the ball with poor preparation.
