    I would think you are correct. Being left eye dominant, I find that an open stance is NOT good for me. When I close my forehand stance, I tend to hit my forehands much cleaner.

    On a slightly related note: one of the members at my club is missing an eye, it causes him huge problems when playing in strong winds or against players with a lot of spin.

    However he is still one of the best doubles players in the club, because he has some of the best movement and anticipation I have come across, and he always closes in to the net to hit a volley winner, which he gets 9 times out of 10.
