    99% of lefties before Connors probably..(Laver most notable)

    Muster, Feli Lopez (if you want that thing a backhand :) ) probably more can't think of them though.

    Jeez are you kidding......just about all of em pre 90s. Villas, Orantes, Laver, JMac, Leconte, Forget, Gomez, Muster, Pilic..........in the 70s the only big time 2 handed backhands were Connors, Dibbs, Solomon, Borg

    +1. He always gets overlooked on these boards. Great player in both singles and doubles.
