That may be. I recently did a Google Image survey of "Borg Forehand" and found zero evidence that he hit with western, or semi-western. I would say he hit his forehand with an eastern grip, or strong eastern at most. Very similar to Fed's grip, actually.

And yet it's easy to find tons of articles wherein the great Swede's grip is described as "western."
