Re: Who the hell on he tour hits a heavy topspin TWO-HANDED backhand?

Ferrer's inability to go DTL off a low Federer slice brought this topic into question today. He just doesn't have the spin off the backhand to lift the ball up over the high part of the net and bring it down inside the court with the linear 2hbh he hits. This makes his inevitable cross-court reply very predictable and attack-able.

Even Djokovic depends on having a high ball on the backhand (which Nadal will readily provide for him) to go down the line with consistency. This is perhaps why Federer's bh slice gives Djokovic trouble. Although his backhand has more spin than Ferrer's - it's certainly not a spinny shot.

Contrast this with Nadal, who can brutalize Federer's low slice with the amount of spin he has on his forehand. It will easily clearly the net and go back down well inside the court. He can thus go anywhere he wants with it - cross-court, DTL - Federer has to guess.

Who on the tour, hits 2hbh so spinny that they can easily lift a low slice up and down over the highest part of the net?

Nalbandian have fantastic racquet work and speed on his backhand side. It really depends whether he's having a day off or not otherwise he can mix it up very well between spin and flat shots.

Why does it have to be one or the other? You seem to either think a player hits with heavy topspin or a player hits completely flat.

What about Nalbandian's two-hander - is that hit with a lot of topspin or is it one of these 'pure' flat shots?

It certainly looks more unique than the rest of the 2-handers

I play a high level tennis, and I play a double handed backhand with a slight slice. Just saying...

It's true there are not many that come to mind! I struggle to name any.

The first two who came to my mind, and I didn't go to youtube for confirmation, were Igor Andreev and Ryan Harrison.

It really is a unique stroke. Playing myself, I can't imagine mustering much topspin on my backhand. My go-to is slice or flat - but I also don't play with a Western grip

Bruguera used to do this. But you can't have just a heavy topspin bh. He had the flat one as well.

Heavy spin, pretty difficult with a two-hander, which is why one-handers can generate much better topspin, the wrist is very free in such a shot much like the forehand..

Everyone volley,s and slices 1 handed! If two handers where so bad how come nine of the last 10 Slam winners have two handed b hands? There,s a difference between any old two handed and a good one , like nadal Murray or djokovic !
I hit the backhand slice two-handed. But I am far from a professional player and it is pretty far from a professional shot.
