Nice article- thanks for posting it. Dimitrov sounds like a great
talent, yet level headed, and appears to have very supportive
people around him. Go Dimitrov!

Well, there was a thread here not to long ago prophesizing the death
of the single handed backhand. So if
he turns out to be as good as you say he'll be, that would end that
speculation for another 10 years.

I really hope so! The one-handed backhand belongs to tennis.

PS.

I would certainly hate to see it disappear completely.

By the way, some interesting stats on success of 1-handers vs. 2-
handers since 1988 (when AO
went to hard court)

AO - 12-10 in favor of 2/handers
FO - 14-7 in favor of 2/handers
W - 17-4 in favor of 1/handers
USO - 15-6 in favor of 1/handers

Of course, now with the leveling of the surfaces, these ratios figure
to change in the future.

But it will be interesting if the trend toward 2/handed backhands and
defense can completely eliminate
the big-serving, 1-handed, all-court play that has reigned supreme at
Wimby/USO
