Alberto Berasategui made the "Hawaiian" forehand grip famous when he reached the 1994 French Open final, which he lost to Sergi Bruguera. No other Grand Slam finalist had ever used the Hawaiian grip, because it's too extreme for most players to even attempt. If you can manage it at all, it's only well suited for hitting very heavy topspin.
