Tournament of players playing with the hand they don't normally play with



According to me its gonna be a fun!Plus WTA is already a circus!

I'd like to see a whole tournament of players playing with the hand they don't normally play with. That'd be fun.

Its all about Clijster`s video planning third tennis career... LEFT HANDED

I read a while ago that Hingis beat her mother when they played 6-0 6-1 or 6-0 6-0, where she played left handed!!!



Ivanovic - Görges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz

Re: Tournament of players playing with the hand they don't normally play with

Well now we see how Clijsters backhand has gotten better over the years.
She's worked on play left handed which puts more emphasis on her left handed when she goes for her two handed backhand.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Re: Tournament of players playing with the hand they don't normally play with

I saw Venus play Serena left handed on Serena's MTV Diary. She was killing her BTW. Maybe Venus should play Serena left handed more often.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Exactly.
My coach used to tell me the left hand was the key to a good backhand so I was always practising left handed forehand.

Not really. She'd still have to switch over her hands so that she played with a double handed LEFT handed backhand, and a double handed LEFT handed forehand, which is pretty different to what she plays with now.
