This is a strange confession to make, given Lendl's superior record. But he reasoned that in today's game of powerful racquets and booming serves, the extra "solidity" (my word) offered by the two-hander helps any returner make forceful, aggressive returns. If the early portion of the Open era belonged to the servers, the latter certainly belongs to the returners. Lendl's comment further underscores the idea that two-handers have shaped the game, because it implies that the two-handed backhand has enabled returners to diminish the traditional advantage on which the entire game and scoring system is based: you are supposed to hold serve, because initiating a point with a powerful statement (the serve), and one which is entirely under your control, is a clear advantage; the way to win at tennis is to hold your own serve and get a break against your opponent's serve somewhere along the way. That's still true, but much less so than before." What kind of backhand do you use? I use a two-handed backhand because it just felt more natural to me.
