You don't have to play a lot to know this.
I have no issues hitting half volleys or behind me with one hand and the backhand overhead is always a smash for me, never a slice. I suppose it's the benefit of all those hours playing squash and badminton.

While I can imagine hitting low half volleys in the service box with two hands, i think single handed would give more feel/disguise/angle.

The real question:
how does one reach a backhand overhead with two hands? is there a two handed version of this? http://youtu.be/u2vF9xnL-EU?t=5s
