From a learning an "advanced foundation" perspective, learn a two-handed forehand, (Seles/Bartoli style) and a conventional two-handed backhand. This style of forehand contributes greatly to the development of a strong conventional forehand, adding more emphasis on footwork, shortening the backswing, creating a more repeatable, reliable swing path, and proper body position and balance...all which can be translated into a conventional one-handed forehand if a player chooses to switch at some point.
