    I hurt my left thumb a few weeks ago and it's almost healed but it's taking a lot longer than expected so I'm trying to learn how to hit right-handed now. Has anyone else had to learn to play with their non-dominant hand and if so, how long did it take to get to a decent level?

    Right now, I am hitting against a wall and playing my friend who is a little lower level than me.
  2. Nadal does this. It's possible. If you keep using your nondominant hand, it will begin to feel more natural due to the increase in brain activity or whatev. It's like practicing guitar will make you better, same thing applies.
