As I related in another thread, I am attempting to add a bit of diversity to my back hand. I am a lefty. At any time that I have sought professional council regarding my game, I have always sought out another lefty. I recently stopped at a local tennis facility to see if I could scare up someone to fill that bill. I walked up to the desk and asked the lady behind the counter about lessons. I said I was looking for a left handed pro. She says, "all our pros can teach both right handed and left handed students. It doesn't matter." I respond by saying that she may feel that way and to an extent that is true but I prefer left handed teaching pros. With a smirk she says " I have no idea who here is left handed" (the smirk doing the job of ahole which was left unspoken.) I said "well I can see that this is not the place for me" and I left. I still think I am correct. Left handers see the game differently than right handers and further, it's my $$$. If I wanted to learn Russian, I would seek someone fluent in the tongue not someone who first thinks in English then speaks the word in Russian. What say you, is smirk lady right??
