Emphasis on the bold, it is generally easier for one-handers to deal with flat hitters.
As for this argument, Wawrinka has a solid backhand, but he doesn't win with his backhand, he wins with combinations, such as backhand opening up the court for the forehand or put-away volley. Gasquet ends points outright (when he's playing with some sort of modicum of confidence) with his backhand, and his finishing skills aren't too shabby either, so I would put Gasquet ahead of Wawrinka (but only slightly).
