I’ve pretty much always hit a one-hand backhand, and have always had an all court game, leaning toward S&V. I hit probably 90% slice backhands because my top-spin has just never been solid, especially under pressure. Over the summer I really put in a effort to come over the ball more and my topspin one-hander got much better, but I had real problems in my game because now I had to use three grips (continental, sw forehand, and now an Eastern bh) instead of two (conti, sw). I used to hit everything except forehand top with a continental grip: slice bh, volleys, serves, approaches and overheads. I can switch between conti and my sw forehand grip without any problems and without thinking at all. I can’t seem to get that with a more eastern bh grip. I kept getting stuck with the wrong grip. I couldn’t adjust to a bad bounce on the baseline, or to a good volley from a bh pass I’d just struck. My solution: two-hands, conti/sw backhand! Now I can hit a firmer approach and not be rushed into making a grip change because there is no grip change. If I get a bad bounce at the baseline I can just drop the second hand and hit a slice. I don’t know why I waited so long. Actually I do know why I waited so long. I waited because I was always told you can’t S&V effectively with a two-hander. All the best all-courters use a one-hander. Pete used to have a great two-hander and changed so he could S&V. Etc, etc, etc… Guess I’m just wondering if most people still believe you can’t S&V well with a two-hander, or if there are others like me for whom it works?
