    Ok - I admit this is pretty funny :)

    Now where's Drak? This thread is just perfect for him....

    Maybe the secret for Nadal could be a 1HBH and a Mid!

    this site is getting funnier by the minute:lol:
    one wants Federer to switch to a 2 hander and now another one wants Nadal to switch to a one hander:roll:

    i'm not kidding... i really believe that NADAL will have more chance if he can learn to use one handed backhand... sampras changed from two handed to one handed backhand and look how many wimby he won...

    I'm sorry but at what age did Sampras change from 2 to 1?
    it's easier for a 2 hander to use a one hander to set shots but to change from 2 hands to 1 hand at that age?:confused:

    "It should also be noted that Pete Sampras changed from a two-handed backhand to a one-handed backhand when he was in his early teens. Why? Well, he wanted to win Wimbledon and he believed that a one-handed backhand would enable him to volley better. I think his record at this Slam event speaks to the veracity of his belief."

    i think Nadal is still young enough to change his backhand... i saw him hit a decent one handed backhand before... i believe he can do it...

    This thread goes from being good quality humour to being a terrible, boring & pointless thread with each time you claim that you're serious.

    It's a good laugh, leave it there. Anything else is too ridiculous an idea to even be close to funny.

    By the time Nadal has mastered the one handed backhand, he'd be playing the senior tour by then.

    Nadal's 2 hander handled federer on grass last time but Federer might need to learn a 2 hander at Wimbledon now that Nadal is beating him on grass too.
    :D :D

    roddick, nadal, agassi, hewitt, nalbandian, bjorkman, ivanisavic, borg. all of these guys except bjorkman have made the finals or even won, bjorkman made the semis last year! i think the one hander is irrelavant

    The forehand is Nadal's problem on grass. To much topspin. Needs to learn to flatten it out so that it's not kicking up right into his opponents wheel-house.
