Re: Which backhand do you use?

One hander. I used to hit both hands of both sides but then i switched my forehand and found it too hard to keep the double backhand. Its not the weapon it was but its much better for dictating play in the sense that I can put my slice anywhere and its still a fine shot flat.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I started with a two handed backhand and switched to a one handed bachhand two years ago. Now I'm happy about that decision.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I hit a topspin 1 handed backhand and 1 handed slice as well.

I was actually taught a 2 handed backhand but I just couldn't hit the shot well. My coach had me hit a 1 hander one day and I was much better at it. From that day I started using a 1 handed backhand.
I love hitting this shot. it is my favourite shot to hit and I hit it very well.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

2 handed - I learned tennis on my own, without lessons or coaching etc...The backhand was the first shot I really learned to hit well, and it came quite easily. My favourite player was Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, and I always loved her backhand too

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I use a two-handed because I love the feel of it. I would hit two handed forehands if I could I love the control and power I feel I can get from them.

Occasionally I find myself hitting a one-hander on the fly, but its just a reflex shot. If I need the extra reach I might use it.
