    In my opinion the single hander is a thing of beauty and as played by some on the tour it's the best looking shot there is.
    But does anyone believe there's a visually appealing two hander out there to rival the single handers and if so who is the player (players) who own it (them)?
    Now, this isn't about the effectiveness of the stroke - it's about the look of the shot and it's visual appeal.
    To me the single handers wielded by Fed, Stan, Almagro for instance are much more pleasing to the eye.

    Safin had a heavy and great-looking two-hander that looked clean and effortless everytime he swung it. I rewatched Federer vs Safin 05 AO lately and the kind of angles he produced with his 2HBH were amazing. Also, I loved the thudding sound it gave off everytime he hit it with sheer blunt force.

    Of course, Federer's own 1HBH was clicking too in that match...

    Since we had 2 Safin, I'll add the second Nalbandian. DTL or short CC, he executed. I mean, he did destroy Federer and Nadal back to back in the same tournament, back to back tournaments.
