I switched to a one hander last April. I became proficient off the ground rather quickly. I'm only now starting to become dangerous. Finally, after 10 months, I am at a point where I can start to return with Top Spin. It will take a lot of hard work and frustration. I came close to changing back several times. Essentially, you need to start with your hands well in front of you and take a terribly short backswing. It is important to align your racket hand behind the path of the incoming serve, so that if you weren't holding a racket, you would literally catch the serve. Once in this position, you pull the butt of the racket towards the ball. The swing is very short, with little follow through on serves that are hit with pace.
