She usually only hits the topspin one during warmup so If I were you I'd look for completed matches online and look at the warmup.

She tried one against Justine at Wimbledon because of her thumb.

I don't think there is any video of her winning any points (certainly not hitting winners) with it though. I mean she can hit it, but in pressure situations, such as official matches, she's a lot more confident hitting her two-handed backhand.

BTW, since we're requesting, there was this neat trick Serena once did at the 2003 FO against Marie-Gaiane Mikaelian in the second round. Serena serves a fault and Marie hit's the ball back at Serena to serve with again, and Serena catches the ball out of the air with her racket, I mean it just stopped dead on her racket. It was so cool. Does anybody remember that? It would be a miracle if someone had a clip.

I remember Capriati did that once at the US Open and it was amazing! :hearts:
