Why is Sharapova playing with her left-hand?

She hit a left handed forehand against Hantuchova at Wimbly that turned into a winner, so maybe she's decided to persue that avenue.

Masha began playing tennis left-handed. After a certain age (can't remember ) Yuri was debating whether or not Masha should play right or left, but eventually she chose right. During her Wimbly match with Dani, you can see Masha hit a short-angle lefty forehand winner on the run when Dani tried to rush the net.

Cool! Ever tried to play with one racket at each hand? Should be interesting ...you know, you would be something like Edward Scissorhands, just with tennis-rackets!!!

@esquímaux: Actually it´s a wide-spread rumour that Momo actually is a lefty but plays tennis with her right hand...Not sure about this, but I always hear it.

They should change the rules for that!

Oh, Esquímaux gave a pretty good explanation, so I guess the question is answered...

I've hit myself in the head several times while playing tennis...I can't imagine hitting with two rackets...What a mess for this uncoordinated fool!
