And what shall I say...the fearless, tireless SBH warrior...

I preach the shot everywhere I go.

I call man who play it in my club - women.

I call Rafael Nadal - Death of Tennis. (I hope people are now beginning to see why).

But I don't just talk the talk - I play the Beautiful Thing as well.


Oh, if only the world knew the delight and joy it giveth back.... Rose


VIVE LE SINGLE BACKHAND!!!!! love love love

Cheers buddy and thanks for the Pouille coach comment.
I'm going to pitch this to tennis.com or tennis head, in a more serious thread. Boring!

I know Tignor & co read OTF. Winking

Call me naive or Don Quixotic, but why don't we organise a petition?

Make a bit of civilised noise outside O2 in November?

There is a nice video on tennistv this morning:

The Beauty of the One-Handed Backhand

It really cheered me up and showed the fight is not over and my barking on OTF and elsewhere has not been in vain! Big Grin

Not sure if this link will show the clip, if it doesn't it will probably make it to ATP website later. I hope.

Tragically, Fed said he'd teach his children to play with a DBH. Coward! Grr

fed is right. Sadly....unless they really speed things up.

But as I said many times, Djoko and all those DHBH coudl not have been great players had they been forced to play with one hand.

It's certainly a talent sorter! As Stan says, you need "good" timing.

This will sound self important and self aggrandising but i think that video was made off the back of my questions to Greg Sharko over the months about the decline of the shot.

He said he will ask some top 50-100 players with a shbh a few of my questions and hey presto a few weeks later, this gets made....

Could be wrong but we have been conversing via email for almost 2 months now.
