Agree. Note how many of the top doubles players have one-handed backhands and their game is all serve and return...very few groundies. Obviously helps on the volley too, but remarkable really how many doubles specialists have 1BHs. A quick look seems to show 9 of top 20 doubles players have 1BHs if I looked at it right.
