2. I've NEVER had a two-hander not be able to hit a highly skilled one-handed backhand.
I wonder if there is a selection bias effect at work here. Perhaps this is in part because players with a 2hbh are more likely to have had coaching in the past? Or perhaps people who choose a 1hbh have lazy feet and are trying to stretch to the ball?

Btw, what kind of 2hbh do you teach? Bottom arm straight at contact?
