    I have no doubts that once the votes are in, righties with 2BH will prevail ... read 'em and weep.

    Lefty with a stronger right hand/arm/shoulder...
    1hbh but my rightie forehand is much stronger and more consistent
    Rightie serve is just as fast as lefty serve, but second serve is spinnier and slower, leading to more losing sets.
    No rightie backhand to speak of.

    I'm really surprised that (so far) there are more 1hbh than 2hbh's.

    So, you serve both right-handed and left-handed and you hit forehands on both sides as well?

    Me too. Always heard 2hbh is the more common thing these days, guess that's wrong in TW atleast. (or 2hbhers didn't vote?)

    Righty with a two hander, reporting in to poke fun at the (soon-to-be) minorities.

    could be a number of things. Could be that's just who happened to look at this thread. Could also be a misconception that most players use the 2-hander. Maybe more people use the 1-hander than people think. Hard to say with these polls.

    I'm a righty with a 1 handed backhand. But I do play 2 handed sometimes when I need the consistency.

    I'm a righty with a 2-handed backhand, but Ironically, the 1-handed backhand is a lot more natural for me than 2HBH, but I get lots more of power with the latter one :).

    Lefty with a bad shoulder that only gives me problems when I use my backhand. I like watching a goodlooking 1HBH, but for me I can generate so much more pace and spin with 2HBH. So lefty 2HBH here
