Re: Two-handed V One-handed Backhand

i am a tennis coach as a profession and there are advantages with both shots

two handed

generally more power as you have two hands
more stable
more weight behind the shot
a wider range of grips can be used

need better footwork
need good co-ordination becuase you are using two hands

one hander

more topspin as a general rule
wider range of shot shapes as long as the correct principles are followed
more reach
and a wider range of stances can be used


less power
requires more strength from the player
can be less natural to a player

i hope that helps i always go with what is more natural to a player wether they be a beginner or top 10 in the country
