Re: Which backhand do you use?

I use a two-handed topspin bh primarily, but can hit a one-handed slice as well.

Another option, not listed in the poll, is "no backhand". I know it is super rare, but I've seen a guy with 2 forhands (one on each side, and no BH.)

Two handed and I hit it just like Hingis, I have thighs of steel.

One handed topspin and one handed slice. It's one of my favourite shots.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

2 handed top spin and 1 handed slice

i started playing with no instruction whatsoever and i tried to hit topspin and slice with one hand and the results were generally disastrous. then i got some lessons and tried the two hander... now it's way more consistent than my forehand and i've improved the slice so there's variety on that side. my forehand is all over the place though

Re: Which backhand do you use?

Double handed backhand. One handed never worked for me. I am more confident when I am using both hands I guess and have more control of the ball. I want to learn the double handed forehand as well but the coach won't let me.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I don't have a backhand. I run around to hit a forehand or I just take a very ugly swing at the ball and pray it goes in.

Re: Which backhand do you use?

I hit a 2 handed backhand and it can only go one direction - down the line. I literally cannot hit cross-court. I think its a bit of a mental block because I used to be able to but now I'm afraid I'll make an error.

Not for me it's not!

I hate it because it is extremely predictable.
