    I am more comfortable with the 1hbh, however a few weeks ago, I switched two a 2HBH bc it was hard to deal the high balls and balls that came close to the body. Now I feel like I want to switch back bc although the balls that come close to the body is easier to deal with, it's still hard to deal with the high balls. that jump with the high balls of 2hbh doesn't feel very natural, although i havent practiced it much. also i feel like my control with the 2h isnt as great either. so my question is how do i deal with balls that come close the body and the ones that are high with a 1hbh?

    Aim for solid contact, and hit it high/deep, don't try to rip it or do anything fancy with it.
    I'd recommend slicing it, but make sure you keep it low or else you'll be caught in a load of doodoo :p

    I'm only 5'6" so I'm used to having high bouncing balls come to my backhand side. The key to this is footwork. If you can anticipate well enough to know where the ball is going to bounce, take it on the rise. Otherwise, back up and hit the ball when it drops a bit.

    For those balls that are at head height, I love doing a jumping one-hander.
