2 Handed On Both Hand!!!Unbelievable..

U know, i think after US Opens, Bartoli's double hand playing
was compared to Monica's a lot, and many said
Monica was better when she was 17 than Bartoli,
but who else on the tour has double hand playing,
i know coz i saw one, that person is Hsieh,
who u guys are probably pretty familiar with,
and actually she did quite well with that,
so maybe double handed strokeds arent that back after all,
have u guys seen anyone else w/ 2 hand on both sides?

If these newcomers would stick to this style, then their future to make it to the top is vague.

Monica Seles managed to get away with this because back then, her opponents are not as fast and powerful as today's current top players.

well, Monica's best is not good enough to win her a Grandslam nowadays.

Adriana Serra-Zanetti got to the QF in AO,
Cory Ann Avants was pretty good in juniors,
not to mention Bartoli and Hsieh,
i guess this type of playing actually serves them well then,
u guys think if they change to one handed
forehand, will they have better showings?
with these new crops of 2 handed player,
i hope someday they can team up in doubles,
that would be good......

who was that girl who played against monica at us open in 2001 who hit forehand with right hand and literally switched to left hand to hit a left handed forehand instead of hitting a backhand?
