    I wonder, is Sluiter the only player who instead of hitting both the fore and backhand with two hands, actually has 2 double handed backhands!?

    Example:

    2 handed lefty backhand:

    2 handed righty backhand:

    Santoro is different, he has a two handed forehand, Sluiter doesn't have a forehand, instead he's got 2 double handed backhands.

    I think Santoro has 2 backhands and Brad Gilbert thought that too during the AO

    Santoro hits a double handed forehand, he has his right hand on the bottom of the racket when he hits his forehand. So Brad Gilbert was wrong.
    Sluiter and Gambill hit two backhands.
    Seles had a double handed forehand as well as French player Marion Bartoli.
