beat you with his or her off hand. We know Nadal can beat just about everyone here with his right hand. Name some more pros who can beat you with the off hand.

i had a friend that was a lefty that used to play people for money right handed. he would give a dink first serve and push like mad. he won everytime because he was in such amazing shape he could push and outlast your average player. he only got to around 1000 atp.

so to answer your questian i think 99% of the people here lose to every single one of them.

Federer claims that he can't play very well with his left hand... which I think is Federer speak for "solid 6.0."

Nadal is a natural righty.

I'm a solid 2.0 with my left hand... lol (except I can't serve worth a damn)

I'm a 3.0 lefty with a 2.0 lefty serve.

I heard that Arnaud Clement played some Futures lefty. Not sure if that is true, or how he fared.

I know Ferrer practices with his left hand at the end of each training session. He'd bagel me twice in a row.

I'd beat Roddick and Federer if they played lefty.

Speak for yourself here.Nadal cant beat me.

I have sent several emails to Nadal and Roger challenging them to play me. I am yet to recieve any reply from them. Only logical conclusion i can draw is that they are afraid to play me. Doesnt surprise me though. It is no secret that most TW forum members can beat any ATP player.

Ditto. Except in my case you can remove 'virtually' :D

I beat 3.5-4.0 with my left hand pretty regularly. Sometimes when my hitting partner is vastly inferior to me, I would offer him a handicap by playing with my left hand. I still won every time. All i do is just try to keep the ball in play. The serve is the toughest part to execute when playing with your unnatural hand. All I could do with the serve is just try to get it in the box. Although I can't drive with my left hand, I'm still fast enough to run down most balls that they throw at me.

Ok, dude, that's great, but what about the pros? Which pros would whip you?

My point is if I could beat most average players with my left hand, then the pros would destroy most players with their unnatural hands with ease. As for the pros, I played with ranked pros in futures and satellite qualifiers many times, and I rarely got bageled. So I can definitely beat some pros who aren't good with their unnatural hands.

How about Luke Jensen? Do you feel you could beat Luke if he played lefty?

Is he good with his left hand? What's his highest rank? I used to play competitive tennis, so I'm definitely not going to embarass myself though.

Rumor has it he could serve 130 with either hand.

If Luke serves lefty on the ad side, does he continue to rally lefty?

I've googled it up, and it seems the guy can play with both hands. No, I don't think I will beat him, but it would still be somewhat competitive.

Moya could with his left hand, he's left handed but plays righty.

He sure doesn't like to hit his backhand for someone who's a natural lefty.

Sharapova has hit a few sweet winners with a lefty forehand



I guess it depends which pros practice with their opposite hands

Virtually all of them.Isn't that the truth. There is some guy who actually shifts racquest from right to left hand. He is not very high rated but I have seen clips of him doing it.
