    right. Lefties have the same two handed backhand technique.

    no. i am a lefty and i play 1 handed backhand.

    i really like playing righties who like down the line shots..especially with their forehands. i'm just fast enough most of the time to get there and hit a wicked crosscourt forehand that seems to shock them almost every time it happens. righties dont get that the left side is my forehand!

    I am an unnatural lefty.

    I am actually righthanded (but leftfooted in soccer) but due to tennis elbow problems I have been playing predominantly lefty in the past (half) year.

    It is really fun on the one hand side (no pun intended :)) because you can demolish your opponent's backhand, but on the other hand side you have to reconstruct your game, especially serves and to a lesser degree volleys. However I am starting to reap the first benefits of my start-from-scratch/crash course to being lefthanded. My serves start to develop more pace, so do drives and I feel that there is potential. The first few months were frustrating, hitting out balls I know I can make and lacking power against hardhitters. However this weekend I won convinicingly playing lefty against two friends I struggle with as a lefty but have normally always won against playing righty so my level is going up.

    Im a righty, with a 2-hander. Guess that counts for something for the left.

    righty, but I play 2 or 3 lefties in our league; I love playing lefties to hone my overall game

    I'm right handed. I've actually only ever played one leftie, and I didn't realize he was left handed until I was losing 4-0...

    Now down to 4 feet behind the baseline.
    I'm righty, and I hate people who think that being left-handed makes them naturally better. That makes me sick.

    i dont mind playing lefties. my best shot is a xcourt fh and im a righty. i also hit my 2hbh early so the spin on their serve doesnt really effect me that much.
