He first hurt his knee at Indian Wells, so no it's not only Rebound Ace that allegedly causes injuries.
He know races horses.
I remember Carlsson defenting Emilio Sánchez-Vicario both in Hilversum and in Kithbuel -needless to say i watched it on TV- , and also, winning in Barcelona, in four sets against a young Muster. He was like a human backboard, in addition to the aforemention.
