I'm just wondering if anyone knows of someone noteworthy who plays defensively on the forehand but plays inverted attack on their backhand?

I'm increasingly finding that my forehand chop is significantly more reliable than my forehand topspin, while my backhand topspin is by far my best weapon of all. I've recently changed from inverted to MP on my forehand - Peacekeeper, now removed by the latest LARC - in order to improve my handling of sidespin and to allow me more comfort trying to chop with inverted. Playing this way, my results have almost immediately improved.

I know chopping on the FH is the reverse of every defender I have ever seen, but I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who does it my way. Any videos?

Blade: Custom soulspin defensive
FH: Chop-city!

I used to play that way, calling it a reverse modern defender! Never found any videos of any high rated players though. I did see a 2000 level player in person doing it, but no videos.
