Which Aussies have two handed backhands?

I was thinking about it and other than Lleyton I can't think of an Aussie that has a 2 handed backhand. These are the ones that I know have one handers:
Molik
Pratt
McShea
Sewell
Baker (New Zeland)
Adamczak
Arthurs (ATP)
Phillipousus(sp?...ATP)
Draper(ATP)

I have never seen Jaslyn or Casey D. play so maybe they have 2 handers...?What about Todd Woodbridge? I can't remeber what he plays with. I think that Todd Reid may have a 2 hander but I could be wrong. Anways, the point is that most Aussies have one handers. I wonder why most coaches think that is the best thing for their players. There is nothing wrong with it but it is sort of interesting. I guess they feel about the one-hander like Americans do about the two hander.

Dominikovic, Stosur, and Watson all do

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

yeah i use to play with a one hander then i told my coach i was changing to a 2 hander and he didnt like it. i think its because with one handers u can stretch for balls more easily and also u get the feel with the one hand for volleys etc, when i changed over my volleys and slices got worse becuase i didnt have as good a feel anymore with a single hand.

and to confirm stosur does have a one hander and also evie dominikovic.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

i think most aussie coaches have a big sense of tradition, most of the aussie greats have had one handers and they want to pass that on. alot of aussie coaches also encourage serve volleying and getting into the net as much as possible.

I could not agree more. Serve volleying is a big thing here. And yeah, not only does Olivia Lukaszewicz have a two handed backhand, she uses both hands for the forehand too.

Yeah the main thing is that a one hander is good for volleying and most Aussie coaches love their players to be serve volleyers, probably because Australia has a tradition of having good serve volley players.
