About a forehand, I think that a 2HBH straight arm is impossible.

Would be that straight arm have more velocity of ball and the double bend more control?.... but Gonzalez plays with double bend hand have one of the most rapid forehand,... i donīt know

Just out of curiosity, I always here the term "double bend" but have no idea what it is. Can someone explain briefly to me what it is?

Federer sometimes, but he double bends too so he's 50/50.

I thought Nadal was a str8 arm guy?

I know fo sho that Djoko is a double bend.

Federer is str8 for the most of the time.
