Hi Alois,

I have never practices with left handers. I played a lefty last week who has very strong forehand and he did a lot of flat fast hits but his backhand is weak and he just pushes with his backhand. I also have a weak backhand topspin.But really good on forehands.

Next week I may play him in a tournament a I need some advice from you. Thanks.

Hi Ali,

YOu want the game to be played a lot on the diagonal with your forehand and his backhand.

Try to serve long and fast to his backhand side.  This will force him to play either a weak push or to try and attack with his backhand.  He will also have a natural angle over to your forehand which is his preferred side.

When returning you can try to push the ball long or flick to his backhand side for the same reasons.
