After a few months if I feel I'm not improving much I'll switch to a double or at least try it out. Thanks for the help
Just practice both look at Tsonga, he actually hits a one-hander sometimes. Really practicing both at the same time, especially when you are learning the game is the best way to decide what works best. Silly in my opinion to practice just one as you'll never know your true potential using the other.
