First time seeing this kid. Another OHBH next gen star. Crazy.
I don’t get why so many are using one handed backhand, I think it may be a comfort thing or maybe flashy, mainly because they want to separate themselves? Shapovalov, for as good as his backhand can be, is the UGLIEST shot I’ve ever seen.

unless a player / his or her parents / coach will decide that player X will use 2 forehands, it means that on one side that player X will be using a backhand shot.

in short.
both, 1hbh and 2hbh have some strengths and weaknesses, and they are different.
as you can see, at the very top of the game there are players using 1hbh and 2hbh, so this is not exactly a parameter that will make a difference between a talented kid having a realistic chance to get to #1 or not.
and it is not about differentiation.

It is a very modern OHBH, liken it to a "full western grip equivalent backhand"

@rafa_prestige89 can you give me a quick review of Lynx Tour 1.25? I am a longtime Tour Bite and ALU user so if you can compare it to those that would be great. Thanks!
Yes I can...compared to Alu, Lynx Tour has more control, a little more spin, much more durability, much better tension maintenance and less power. The comfort is about the same.

Made in China, same factory just like the one you can buy.
Did he move to the retail one after testing and when it launched? Wasn't an older layup in a new mould like what HEAD have done with other recent releases?

It sounds so good on contact. HHR and Lynx Tour still I'm guessing?

@Howard H maybe you can confirm once and for all?
