How To Play A Left Hander

Sport : Tennis

If you are playing a left hander then it might be quite unfamiliar territory for you.

Here's what to look out for:

Clearly the major difference, the forehand and backhand wins are the other way round. Tell yourself this whilst you are serving and be prepared to swap over your normal service games to serve out wide from the right court and down the middle from the left, even if years of playing righties means you normally do the opposite!

Note that on their serve if they spin it, the ball might bounce off the court the other way to that which you are expecting. Therefore pay particular attention and remember this so that you don't get caught off guard when returning serve.

Finally, remember that the angles can seem different. Particularly if you hit the ball out wide to the forehand a favourite shot is whipping the ball back cross court at an extreme angle, so be sure to be wary of this shot!
