The Germans Gehring, Maurer, Meiler, Jelen, and even Knippschild who played later on, had all one handed backhands. Ruffels and Philipps-Moore were Aussie lefties with one handers. Jiri Hrebec had a one hander, too, his best match was a Davis Cup win on grass over Newcombe in 1973. In the mid 70s, most players played still one handed backhands. Drysdale, McMillan, Segura were exceptions, before Connors and Borg arrived on the scene.
