So if you're naturally lefty why do you play right handed? She obviously felt it worked better for her and she played at a high level both ways. But a lefty always has an advantage in that they're a lot less common, plus it seems like the serve is always going to be better from the side you feel most comfortable throwing with.
I'm impressed also. I would think she would be even more dominant playing her natural side.

Boggles the mind how good she is playing righty actually
