    In training we used to have forehand matches. Basically, you lost a point if you hit to your opponents backhand unless it was a completely clean winner. It taught me to be selective when trying to hit clean winners from the forehand side. Good fun. I was just wondering if anyone could take Fed in such a match. Nadal, obviously being a leftly would cause a few problems!

    I dont understand the game. If your opponent is not allowed to hit to your backhand, just go stand in the rails of your forehand corner. Easy.

    its a training drill, if its the one i used to do, you are allowed to hit it to the backhand side but it has to be a clear winner, even if the opponent barely gets a racquet on it, the point goes to the opponent

    That can actually work rather nicely for him, I really think so.
