It's nowhere near useless to experiment with the one hander as a two hander. Sure, it's flashy but at the same it it has pragmatic use too. And keep in mind, 2/3 of those matches above he won and the one he didn't was against Murray in a tight three setter
that has nothing to do with Evolution, I think he just did that out of boredom Messing around a Little. if he Plays djokovic he doesn't do it a lot.

I have a two hander but if I play with a Girl or a beginner I will hit some one handers too (I'm no pro of course).
