Very good article.
Nice article, but he put too much emphasis on the men's game. Most early 2H BHanders were women (at least here in Ohio) who were taking Evert's lead. I used to kid them and call them "Chrissie Clones."
Even though I have a 2 hander, it's nice to see Justine break the mold and have such a nice one-hander in the women's game. Most women hit 2 handers these days while the men are more evenly divided.
I love the 2 hander and I usually have a big advantage hitting high balls with lots of topspin crosscourt to my one-handed BH opponents. I do wish I could dropshot better with the two hander though. I almost never do that, so the two hander is a little bit limiting, but for overall consistency and hard dipping passing shots, it's great.
I especially liked that picture of Sampras hitting a BH volley :lol:
