Don't be afraid to switch. Even the great Pete Sampras had a 2 hand backhand until he switched to a 1 hander, and he's one of the best ever.
That's what I'm thinking now. I'm gonna try to use a single handed for a month now to see if it's better for me, thanks Any tips on how to hit a single handed backhand? I'm gonna watch lots of Federer/Gasquet/Sampras videos now.
