today i went to my club to watch the team from the guys over 50 years
and there was a guy from the Guest team who played forehand on each side
he changed the hand for nearly each ball
once he played with left, then with the right hand
and he served with left
crazy, i never saw this before
and so i wonder if there was ever a player on tour who played this way?

crazy style of play, there are also double backhanders.
there's a whole thread about those special players "players playing two handed on both sides" or something like that.

Playing with two-handed on both sides simply means "two handed on both sides" (two hands for forehand and two hands for backhand). These players aren't "double backhanders". Two hands on both sides isn't nearly as peculiar as having a LHed and RHed forehand. I can't imagine anyone with a LHed and RHed backhand. Does anyone have that?

In her WTA profile is plays left handed(ambidextrous) so does that mean she swiched from left to right or had both hands on the racquet? can any one discribe her style of play to me.

when the ball came to her right, she hit with a right-handed forehand.

when it came to her left, she hit with a left handed forehand :p

I think she served with her left hand...
