I never suggested discourage the one hander.
Not sure how you see the stats as exaggerating anything except a 1 handers chances.
Why start a point in a hole when there is a better option?

No reason to look at second serve pts since this whole pt is about big 1st serves.
Even looking at 2012 avg means little in general imo. I think you have to look
at results against big servers 1st serves to be on topic.
Some of the 1 hander players didn't have much exposure to the big servers,
so their stats looked better imo.
I think the advantage is way bigger than these stats when watching a match
where you see Fed chip his rtn into the pt, as opposed to DJ rifling back rtns
with authority whenever he wants to be more aggressive.
