Player image/video evidence - Google, Youtube, etc.
Web archives, player news/magazine articles

and if still no luck ... well that's why I'm here, hope this group can help out. I'll be posting intermittently in player batches of 20, and need assignment in one of three categories: 1H, 2H, or 2H with 2H forehand (e.g. Santoro, Gambill). I suppose there is fourth choice - 1H BH with 2H FH - but haven't run across any examples.
and in which of those 4 categories would you place such a player ?
