Could anyone who has this data post the information on grips and 1hbh vs. 2hbh for the most successful FO champions? Thanks.

Borg, Lendl, Wilander, Kuerten, Nadal, Bruguera and Courier.

Well Guga and the Lendl are the only ones with 1 handed backhands. Go look at the videos I posted in the point construction thread or the oldies, then it's clear to see.

Successful only at RG or on clay in general?

The title is very misleading.

Sorry about that. Yes, I was getting at what kind of grips (eastern, western?) did those people you mentioned use. Thanks.

Borg, Lendl, Wilander, Kuerten, Nadal, Bruguera and Courier.

All the guys PMK mentioned have western grip forehands.

The last RG Champion not using the western FH grip was Agassi.
