y0 kick their ass bro
It's not unfair, though it is a little frustrating.
My brother can also use both hands and I'd say it gives him a distinct advantage.
However these days I have the advantage, cause he's getting fat and I'm still in shape, lol
I suffer from chronic apathy, I was going to go see a docter about it, but I didn't really care.
yes it is. some are fast, some are strong, some have good forehands...
he uses both hands. good for you kid!
and for those who think it's not fair, suck it up and find a way to beat him!
good luck to all of you
that's just strange and i guess normal behavior for kids. it's kids doing it, right? i hope it's not 60 year old guys. that would be sad yet amusing. stick with what works for you.
it would be difficult
As you begin to play with challenging players using both hands will prove quite difficult. If someone smacks a top-spin to you right hand, then belts it back to your left, it will be hard to keep switching your hands. The best option for you is to get comfortable with a selected backhand. However amazing this talent may be, as you begin to play more it will become a real burden, and you will have to strt from 0 in ur backhand.
am I a freak
Don't be silly....most players would love to have that ability. You see more and more young players being taught two handed strokes from each side. Monica Seles comes to mind immediately. What you can do just makes you stand out more. I was on a web site the other day looking at racquets too.
Check out the web site maybe they carry your kind of racquet.
Dude, I know what I am talking about. My friend used to use two hands, and during matches he would get exausted because he would keep switiching his racket. Maintaining a solid backhand is your best option if you want to start playing with solid hitters

I am originally a lefty but i am almost equally as good with my right hand, ambidextrous. My friend always tells me that using both hand gets rid of most weaknesses a normal player would have. If your really talented with both hands then you should already have fast enough reflexes from switching from left to right and right to left, using those reflexes you could defend yourself lol. Anyways don't mind what they do they just are lowering theirselves, it makes them look weaker if you don't let what they do affect you. And don't leave your racket laying around to be broken lock em up in your locker or something. lol
Ambidextrous players will rule over all!
Is it also unfair if a one handed backhand player play against a two hander?
So all the Sampras vs Agassi matches should not count then??
I read an article a few years ago in the tennis magazine about the future of tennis. Apart from predictions like laser strings and virtual reality tennis(!) one of the things the author predicted was players that play "two forehands".
Come on! What is usually everyones weaker shot? If you don't have to play a backhand, of course you will have a better game!
Playing with two rackets, unfair and illegal. Two forehands, hello to the future!
ps. you guys that use the replies to correct peoples spelling, get a life. Is it going to be unfair soon to play tennis if your not english and are writing on this notice board in your 2nd or 3rd language?
I wish I could play with both hands and serve with both hands. What an advantage that would be. They are just jealous. Just go out there and continue winning.
