Novak Djokovic has one of the best backhands on tour.

His double-handed backhand has been crucial for his career especially to counteract Rafael Nadal whose looping cross-court forehand has usually a deadly effect especially against players with a one-handed backhand (Roger Federer knows this story very well…).

However, the Serbian sensation used to try the one-handed backhand at the very early stages of his great career, but fortunately for him, he used “the other option.”

Here a rare video of Nole hitting the one-handed backhand when he was very young. The style was there.
