I had to work super hard to develop a reliable 2HBH with topspin, and lost tons of matches while doing it, but now that I have it, it is such a huge advantage in a rally. The difference in pace between the BH TS and the BH Slice cannot be overstated.
On the contrary I love it when the pace of my 1HBH TS is higher then my opponents 2HBH TS (sometimes even then their FH).
