by the way - there is no reason for 1hb to have a more 'natural slice'... the only reason it's more natural is because the topspin drive got pounded into break down and you are now forced to slice a lot.
Really? Then how did the player that has won way more Slams than even Federer and Sampras win 22 Slams by slicing every backhand? (Steffi Graf). And how did Ken Rosewall win all those Slams and become the best player in the world by slicing every backhand?
