Baggy's 2 handed backhand
 
Watching the Baggy-Ferrer match right now and I'm loving the Baggy backhand. It's compact but there's easy power on that stroke and he can dictate with it.

I can always appreciate a beautiful one hander, but lately I'm really enjoying a 2 hander hit flat and deep. Somehow when the shot is hit with a lot of trunk rotation (like in Djoko's case), or loopy, I don't like it that much.

Anyone else feel the same way?

He's a very loosy goosy player, like Fed a little bit, which is where the power comes from.

Please tell me where the loopy 2hbh's are. I like loopy shots, and only some 1hbh's I can think of are loopy - 2hbh's are all the same flat, linear shot. Low height over the net, low bounce.

If you can think of a loopy 2hbh, please tell me who hits it? Nadal doesn't count because he actually moonballs the backhand (or did in 2011). There is no spin on the Nadal-moonball backhand, it is literally a lob to the baseline.

Nadal has a very flat hard bh as well.

Not helping him much though, Ferrer is beating him convincingly.

Nah, Nadal hits a good topspin backhand. Djokovic also hits it loopy. The flat ones are Murray's and Berdych's for example.

Two handers for me, it'll be Safin's by mountains.

No spin on Nadal's backhand? Mate do some research before you post such nonsense

Safin was awesome too.
