How many juniors girls plays with one Handed Backhand?

The only girl that i know that hit with one handed her backhand is an argentian player, called Malena Gordo.
Her ranking is around the top 40.

Please name the players that you know that hit her backhand with one hand..
Thanks :wavey:

Sacha used to be one handed backhand - but having a two handed backhand really made it a weapon for her rather than just a skill

well, Single Handed backhands usually require tome to master and tame into success.
Henin, Mauresmo - they are rarities.
I think 20 is the age you're looking for to check out if a single hander has got potential.

but sadly, it is a dying art.

In itftennis.com/juniors said that Sacha played with two handed backhand

Read my post (that you quoted from) again. I said that she used too. Having a 2 handed backhand added alot more power and is far quicker to set up for her (especially as she often isnt the quickest girl on court).

She's hitting a slice. Almost every player uses only one hand to slice.
