This stupid thread would make more sense if having "other than Federer" in the title

I see this thread as another try to simply glorify Rog. who cares? players have different techniques. 2 hands + better than 1 hand. It's very simple. 2 hands give you more power.

endless power and far more control.

and it has far fewer variables so there is little that can go wrong.

yesterday is a canceled check. tomorrow is a promissory note at best.

past is past. what worked in the dark ages is of no use today.

True if you are talking about club level players who can't generate any power whatsoever with a singlehander. It requires an extremely strong wrist a lot of people don't have. At professional level singlehanders have an easier time generating their own power.

Affirmative. Nostalgiatards are just......

Almost inclined to say that over 80% of Nostalgiatards are in-the-closet Fedull fans.

Good lord. Fed isn't the only player with the single-handed backhand.

Tennis wins whenever one handed backhand amateurs lose

Nole is so much better than everyone right now that he could probably win a GS with a single handed backhand. He is that good
