two-hand backhand or one-hand backhand?

Guys, which one are you using?
I wonder if Justine can hit a winner like men's.
is that really more confident and save time?

single handed backhand is a beauty to watch but double handed backhand is smarter to use these days. You have the advantage in the return of serve, which is a plus with these booming serves nowadays.

ONE handed easier to put topspin and better reach, great power but not that easy for high balls, but slice with one handed backhand is easier, this shot is used mostly by players with great variety in their games and serve and volley players, TWO handed power with control, but not good to reach balls, no slice with 2 hands also, basically baseliners use this shot most of the time.

I tried to bring the two-handed backhand in tabletennis but it didn't work, too untalented

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

two-hand backhand or one-hand backhand

2 handed

sometimes both at the same time.

I agree that single handed backhand is a beauty to watch !

I use the 2-handed backhand. It's easier for me, and you can hit harder with it. It is easy to be able to do both, because when you have to reach out, the 1-handed backhand is better. For slice also. But mostly, I use the 2-handed one.
