Seems like choppers and modern defenders use the backhand serve disproportionately more than attackers. Do you agree and if so, why do you think that is?
Also, why are there almost zero left handed defenders? Obviously there are generally fewer lefties and fewer defenders in general, so it makes sense that there would be very few cases where a player is both. But still though, i literally have never seen one. I'd think that lefty choppers would fare well, since a right handed attacker's loop tends to go cross-court in to their bh chop.
I think defenders use the backhand serve so that they are in a better central position to deal with an attackers shot.
As far as why there are few left handers, it may just be a numbers game.
Does anyone have any ideas or examples of some left handed defenders...
