    Too bad its not from the back, good to see how consistent his pace and depth was with that one hander.

    Looks like Verdasco is using a continental grip like a two handed backhand. His one hander would be too unreliable.

    I'm sure it would be an improvement for 99%+ of the people here. I'd take it, for one.

    I have a better one-hander mechanically but with constitency and depth and pace maybe not.

    I rather have a Kuerten Backhand than any of the players in the top 20 with SHB!

    No, I dont. My one hander is a lot better than his. Besides, with that continental grip he uses he would struggle a lot hitting balls above shoulder height.

    Doubt it. His footwork will make up for that against any opponent that isn't a pro.

    One out of about twenty.

    I was hoping this thread would be about spanking hot women - and include pictures. Such disappointment...

    Nah, I think I'll take my one hander. :)
