    Out of whim, I watched a McEnroe vs. Connors match through a big mirror (with My back toward my TV set). Strange setting but I could see the match with righty's perspective. Seeing righty versions of McEnroe and Connors was fun. I am going to try one of Goran's match (Goran playing against lefty Rafter). Err, maybe this should be in 'ODD' section.

    Edited)...
    That's silly, not being able to erase it, I edited the post. Sorry.

    No, never had that problem... seems perfectly natural watching lefties...

    ROFL. Never watched a match, but some years ago I also used a big mirror in a pinch to watch and analyze several left handed servers!

    I've also digitized video and reversed the image to create right handed servers....

    Stop corrupting us lefties! I don't reverse Federer or Sampras videos. Leave us alone!

    Tenny - you should try watching a match in reverse - that's even more... um... fun.

    I've watched bowling through a mirror, Parker Bohn III to be exact. He's a goofy looking lefty, but looks normal to me as a righty.

    Great, now I've outed myself and everybody knows I watch bowling. :|

    But, you're not alone :mrgreen:

    No, Aykhan, I just wanted to 'see' them as righties. I don't know, maybe it's camera angle or my own visual habit but somehow I couldn't fully appreciate lefties' shot, serve. By using a mirror, I just found I could now compare their shots with others' better. I wouldn't want to see them playing with their right hands nor righty-versions of them. Think about J. Mac's crazy slice serve to the add court where the right-handed opponents had troble returning it.
