That would be amazing!!!
But highly unlikely, since kids play with a double-handed forehand when they have little arm strength, and the one-handed backhand is the complete opposite of this, as it can only be mastered with sufficient strength.

Venus Williams Li Na Petra Kvitova

I had a period when I played double handed both sides, and I used to have periods when my backhand would break down so I sliced 99% of the time, so I fit in here.

Oh, and no. I don't think we've had such a player on the WTA tour.

Svenja Weidemann from Germany plays like this. But sadly she has only achieved a career high ranking of #496.
