Re: Double Handed B/H and F/H

i'm also 14 and i also hit double handed backhand and forehand sometimes. the shots are stronger, but in my opinion you can take less control. I prefer one handed forehand.

Jan Michael Gambill, Fabrice Santoro are a few males with two hands on both wings. Also Nadal use to play two hands on both sides too when he was younger.

Re: Double Handed B/H and F/H

I tried double fisted both sides...but the grip feels too awkward when you switch from fh to bh

Re: Double Handed B/H and F/H

I just cant imagine hitting a 2 handed forehand, though I am trying to get better at a one handed backhand coz its nice to mix things up

Yeah, Knowle was a pretty cool singles player in his heyday and is still pretty good in doubles. Fabrice Santoro is probably the best example for how much one can do in terms of creating spin on slices from a two handed forehand although then again I'm not sure anyone else could pull off what he does.

You might want to experiment with trying some shots with both the single hand forehand and the two handhanded forehand. It may turn out you are more comfortable hitting some shots two handed and some shots one handed. For example, as Uranium pointed out, Monica Niculescu hits her forehand slices with one hand but most of her other forehands she hits with two hands.

Re: Double Handed B/H and F/H

most of the times I play one handed forehand. my backhand is always doublehanded except for the dropshot . I don't practice a lot with double handed both sides, so I guess that's the reason I'm not that good at it.

Very cool.

You definately got to check out Monica Niculescu. She has an absolutely amazing game and it sounds like yours has a lot of similarities with it.
