I miss that shot...mostly Justine's:sad:
even if some onehanded BH are horrible, IMO it's more beautiful than its bother with two hands

Maybe they should bring in a new rule to encourage one-handers...you play with a one-handed backhand & you get double the ranking points & double the prize money. That might encourage a few of the young ones, they could also do it for anyone who attempts some serve & volley tactics, the further you venture from the baseline, the more prize money you win! ;)

There was 6 in the TOP 100 last time I counted a few months ago.

I thought Vinci had a two handed BH.

Ruano-Pascual is still there with her single BH.

not likely... One handed backhands died with the power game. As far as timing goes its just not smart to be a one hander..... You might get some players who mix the one hander in occasionally, but from my experience the problem with the shot is control. Its a lot easier to redirect a powerful deep shot with two hands than one..... Not gonna lie though, when i hit a solid one I replay the motion in my head.

But also, two handed backhands dont require a change of grip, whereas the one handed backhand does. Its also a lot harder to hit high balls with the one handed backhand... so while it "looks pretty" the minus out way the positives. IMO. I only use it for shots that arent as deep in the court and i didnt move quick enough to get too...

Garbin, Barrois, Dominguez Lino and Bremond are all also one handed backhand players in the top 100.

ok, i'm gonna talk about tennis phenomenos but Henin and Federer use(used) to have a really strong BH even if single, and then i think with it you can hide the change of shot until the last second (moonballs, dropshots, crosses, short-balls...), even if i do agree with you that it's easier to have more control with the two handed BH
