I suspect that the reason for teaching a two-hander is because of the "instant gratification", and people for the most part are lazy. The perception that picking up something and swinging it with two hands on your non dominant side with two hands VS one is eaiser.
yeah I agree the mechanics itself for the 1hbh is simpler.. its just not that easy to execute when not in position.. as you say, laziness is the bane of most tennis players, including myself
