The answer is that it depends on the type of groundstroke you want to produce. Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick both use a two-handed backhand to create enormouse top spin and strength. However, it is more difficult to reach a wide range of shots. A one-handed backhand allows versatility and you can hit wicked slice with it.
