i play tennis now for nearly 2/5 years but still unsure to play my backhand a single-handed or two-hands??
i admire all single-handers like haas,blake,robredo and gasquet plus maestro federer! but on the other hand i admire two-handers like nadal,roddick and aggasi!!
now and after 2/5 years playing tennis i all the time change my mind and want to play in another way...anyways,i talked to some coaches and they've told me "see what your mind says not your heart!"
now i wanna ask you experienced guys to give me some tips and reasons to play which one??
btw:i'm equally comfortable on both options!
thanks in advance...
2 and a half? Or for .40 of a year? Well either way, there are disadvantages and advantages of each.
-Better reach. Not good for on the run much though, but it can give you large angles.
-Harder to master. It takes a while to get good pace and learn how to hit those angles. Plus one handers tend to have a large swing, so to time heavily paced balls is hard.
-One handers can be hit deeper easier.
-Easier to put pace and topspin. Although one handers can get the same speed and spin, two hander is just easier to produce.
-More control. Two hands is stronger than one.
-Excellent on the run. Watch Nadal.
Are you sure your equally good in both? That is a pretty hard feat. Whenever you committ to either one, the other becomes horrible pretty fast. I personally use a one hander because I use it as my "safe winner" shot. Good pace, good consistency and a large angle without risking much.
