Interesting, did anyone else use a two-handed backhand prior to Jan? She may be forever remember if she was the first.
Men's side was Australian John Bromwich who actually used a two-handed serve as well as a backhanded and Vivian McGrath around the 30's and 40's. Of course Pancho Seguara used the two-handed forehand. They came before Jan.
