One-handed backhands - are they in the summer 06 fashion line-up?

Spring 06 has been dominated by the fashionable one-handed backhand. IW had one-handed backhand finalists and so did Miami. Monte-Carlo has three players in the semi-finals with one-handed goodness.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Gaudio's one-handed backhand down the line was simply beautiful to watch today

I agree. I just hope the rest of his game comes together so that I get to watch that beautiful backhand.

You FORGOT ABOUT GASQUET???? gasp gasp. I hope he is healthy soon, I must see his BH on tv during Rome! My MSN Plus filter for the word "backhand" isn't Gasquet or anything

Though Gaudio's indeed was in fine form today so I can understand .

Let's give a holla to Tommy Haas too, shall we?

Yes, I'm feeling much better................just a bit of a stuffy nose. I used Afrin to get through the day, but it makes my nose so very dry that it can be uncomfortable Yes, I forgot about Gasquet I hope he gets healthy soon too............... Also, a little nod to Ljubicic's backhand.......

Actually, his BH hasn't been that great this year. It's been far less consistent and impressive. I don't know what the stats say but from the matches I've watched, he seems to have hit more FH winners.

for me the most stylish classic one handed bh is federer.

The most effective modern, western grippy type one handers are

gaudio and gasquet

It's the most beautiful shot in tennis, unlike all these double-handers coming out of the same assembly-line nowadays.
