DOES NOT HAVE (OR HAVE PLAYED WITH) A ONE HANDED BACKHAND!!!!!!!!
It is most definitely a disadvantage and absolutely the hardest shot to deal with when you have a one handed backhand.
errr, but I have. I've played with a 1hbh and a 2hbh, and found it much easier to deal with high balls with my 1hbh, so I'm in a position to comment.
What grip did you use with your 1hbh? If you're using continental grip with a traditional follow-through, obviously your experience is going to be different from someone like me who uses a semi-western backhand grip and a wristy windshield-wiper follow through.
Each has it's trade-offs. You might be better at digging the ball off your shoelaces and hitting on the rise, but I like hitting at head-height level and when the ball bounces at its peak.
