Yeah, I was watching it, but had to leave. I understand Almagro won the match... In any case, while I was watching I was reminded of a thread someone started here a couple of days ago, saying that 2 hand backhands ruled on clay or something. Watching this match, I couldn't help thinking about that and I kind of concluded that it's quite the contrary. To me, 2 hand backhands seem better suited for flatter shots, while 1 hand backhands seem better suited for topspin shots (and stupid angles). This is regardless of what kind of backhands the current kings of clay (nadal) and fast courts (Federer) use. Anyway, that's just my opinion.
