That seems about right. I feel like floki from Vikings would use a lot of short slices and drop shots ;P seems like a tricky kinda guy to me.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

Depends on the shot. Most rally balls 2 handers, but awkward shots and ripped backhands are usually one handed.

Two-handed and it's my best shot. I love to hit backhands.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I hit a slice one-hander like the mighty Jo-La.

Unlike her, I don't have a horrible two-hander to fall back on. (Although tbh, Jo-La's slice isn't that bad and she sometimes uses it with great tactical sense. Then again, sometimes she doesn't).

Two handed...just took to it naturally. Used to be my best shot and all my favorite players for the most part had them as their best shots as well.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I have two handed backhand, but I tend to play slice on the backhand a lot because Im unconfident with my backhand outside of practice, which sucks because i can hit pretty spectacular DTL backhands kinda like JJ, my crosscourt backhands are another story though, I need to move and set up sooner for it to be effective so thats why in matches I'm not very keen on hitting the backhand, especially when i get nervous I slow down my swing and then i either don't put enough spin and it flies out or I hit it too flat and it catches the top of the net...

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I started to play tennis at the age of 14 and two handed backhand was a kind of natural for me back then. However after maybe 3 years I started to hit also one handed slices and eventually most of my backhands were one handed slices and so in time I kind of lost my two handed backhand. So from about age 20 I have been hitting one handed backhand (both slice and topspin) and I'm now slightly over 40 years of age.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

Two handed, western FH grip. I preferred my eastern FH grip BH, where is felt so relaxing to let frustration out and club my BH's with force But it wasn't that consistent

Re: Which backhand do you use?

two handed , I suck with forehand so I try to play backhand only >_<

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I use a one hander only now. It was difficult to learn and isn't that consistent but much prefer it. I also find it easier to hit down the line shots and to change to a slice at the last minute if needed.
