Right hand for me, even though I'm a lefty. Ambidexterity.

EDIT: Gah, forgot to add 'both'. Sharapova can use both. I'll bet someone here can, too...

As right handed as I am, I can actually hit one hell of a left handed backhand.

I can hit decently with my left (after some warming up) so I like to mess with my opponent (ie, start playing mediocre tennis with my left than all of a sudden switch to my right to nail them :D )
 
i am a natural right handed but after i hurt my wrist 1 year ago, i have been using my left hand for almost one year and now is even better than my right hand

Well... it really depends on what we're talkin' 'bout... I use my left hand for some things and my right for most everything else!

I'm a righty, but I developed probably 3.5 level lefty ground strokes (one-handed backhand) quite quickly while I had tennis elbow in my right. I couldn't stand to be away from the court for months, so I just went out and hit lefty. I can actually hit decent serves lefty too. Kinda fun, really.

Right handed all the way; I have a 1HBH, so i never use by left hand except to help with the back swing and, of course, to throw the ball up for serves.;)

The funny thing is that I cannot hit a two-handed lefty backhand to save my life. That is possibly the most awkward thing I have ever attempted with a tennis racket. Topspin is just a mere dream. I thought it was ironic that I played two hands righty and one hand lefty for backhand.

Righty by nature ... had some fun for three weeks trying to be a temporary lefty when I broke my arm ...

A friend of mine serves with right and plays the rest of the shots with his left ...

I like using my right hand but most people gain nothing from trying to attack my back hand because it is very strong also.

I read/heard they did that a lot in France as well for some reason...well into the 1900's.

Both....I serve left handed (although I can serve right handed if the sun is just to tough) and play right handed.

Both. I usually serve righthanded & play lefty (or 2 hands on both sides), but I have no problem using my lefty serve on important points, or for a change of pace.
