Yes, Mary did it alot to get girls off back in one of the best forms i've ever seen for a woman tennis player back in 2000 clay court season.

Hingis has always been the master of this, as well as Monica Seles.

Hingis, and I've seen Daniela Hantuchova do it a few times.

Monica, although that's technically her forehand that I'm thinking of, but her backhand can do it too. But currently, probably Hingis.

Lindsay also has good crosscourt shots on her backhand, probably not that much of topspin for her

No one on tour comes close to Martina she is fantastic at it, she knows how to use the shot and how to use her brain on the court to think her way through anything

When Hingis hits that shot, you just go "What the...? Where did that come from?" I remember very specifically the 1997 US Open Final, she hit a stunning one to out-maneuver Venus Williams and it was the highlight shot of the match for Hingis.

In addition, Serena Williams on clay circa 2002 (?) had a highly dangerous crosscourt short angle backhand, but I don't recall the level of topspin on it. That was the shot she won the French with, though.
