Ok, I'm 51, overweight, out of shape, with a solid 4.5 forehand and a 3.0 bhnd, but for yrs I've entertained the thought of trying a two hander, but every time I've tried and had a few lessons it felt like both hands were working against each other,so i didn't pursue. I've had discussions with various pros and they basically parroted " too late old man", so another yr goes by. I'm not a big strong guy ( 5'9" weight = we won't go there) and I've always wanted my backhand at least to cause some concern to my opponent, instead of my wuss defensive slice. I have a friend who's willing to hit three to four times weekly this summer, and my thought was, I start by hitting left handed forehands, and then add the right hand until it felt natural, and hopefully by the end of summer I'll have it in the pocket - am I dreaming, or should I be satisfied with the game as is ? is the lack of reach too demanding at this stage in the game, extra footwork ? opinions please.
