I think it would not be possible for someone to hold the raquet like that and get the shot off in tennis. But, I could be wrong...you never know!

I think what he meant is that his backhand shot in tennis is similar to holding a stick left-handed in hockey, with the right (dominant) hand at the end/top/bottom of the stick/racquet, and the left in the middle.

I'm left handed, and it's always felt natural for me to shoot right in hockey. same goes for baseball, golf... hell, i even kick with my right foot.
