Sluiter is even more unique considering he doesn't have a forehand.Raemon Sluiter
Pancho Segura? Are you shure?I play two hands both sides, so I know pretty much all the pros that play with them. It's interesting to watch each of them hit their strokes.
There are some other notable, retired players who played two hands on both sides. Two-handed Hall of Famers include Pancho Segura, John Bromwich, Frew Mcmillan, Gene Mayer, and Monica Seles.
Yes, Pancho Segura (aka "Little Pancho" at 5'6") was the first successful tennis player who really used angles and pace with two hands both sides. You are thinking of Pancho Gonzales (aka "Big Pancho"), who had a conventional game with continental grips and a BH slice.Pancho Segura? Are you shure?
Here’s a name to remember in 2010: Noppawan Lertcheewakarn. Don’t worry, you can call her Nok.
In 2008, Thailand’s Lertcheewakarn, 18, was the first Asian girl to be named an ITF junior world champion after she reached the final of the Wimbledon junior event and went 39-12 in singles and 31-12 in doubles. In 2009, her last year as a junior, she returned to the Wimbledon final, and this time she won the title. She also captured the junior doubles titles at the French Open and Wimbledon.
Lertcheewakarn’s journey to the top began by chance. Her mother was a nurse at the hospital in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where the wife of Steffi Graf’s former coach, Marek Malaszszak, was due to give birth. She asked Malaszszak to watch her daughter play tennis. He saw potential in the 10-year-old and offered to coach her for free. Recently, she has been working with former Clemson University men’s coach Chuck Kriese through the Rising Star Program of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand.
Emulating her idol, Monica Seles, the Thai plays double-handed off both wings. She now has her sights set on the WTA tour. By the way, her nickname, Nok, means bird in Thai. This bird is ready to fly.
