Not the case for all. Actually, many players use the BH slice much more than their 1-handed topspin BH. Back in the day, I had a 1-handed topspin BH that was sometimes my most lethal weapon. However, I would usually reserve this weapon for moderate or slower paced (incoming) balls. On faster or more challenging balls, I would usually use the BH slice. Perhaps 65-80% of my BHs were of the slice variety. I have seen many other players do the same.
