    One of the youtube comments made me laugh.
    "He can write Spanish with his right, and Chinese with his left"

    LOL at the parts where he pretends he can't toss keys or brush his teeth with his left hand.

    This is an old one. It was made by Nike for the Olympics last year. I really love it!

    Nice video. I'm left handed and do everything left except hockey, golf ,playing the flute and throwing a ball. I'm not too bad with my right hand in tennis but have no power whatsover. I suppose if you start young though it feels natural.

    I've always wondered how does Nadal play with his right hand. I find it really strange that there aren't any videos of him practicing with his right hand or doing it just for the kicks

    Later he said: "Von wegen nur Power. Der hat auch das Gefühl gefressen. Der war 20, 30 Meter hoch und den pflückt der so runter..."

    the translation would be

    "So much for power. He has internalised the feel also. The ball was 20, 30 meters up in the air, and he managed to catch it in that way..."

    try brushing your teeth with the opposite hand, it gets pretty awkward.
