I am right handed but play a left hander frequently who I feel I should be beating. Are there any generally accepted tactics I could employ against lefties?

Hi Greg,

As a left hander I don't know that I should divulge such secrets... 

I think one of the greatest advantages of a left hander is that we don't play against them as often so things are just slightly different.

Think about the angles and the strengths and weaknesses of the left hander just like you would when playing a right hander.

One thing is to think about exposing the wide forehand corner of a left hander from your backhand.

I'm imaging the lefties' sidespin serves are extra tricky. What should we do?

Just get experience against them. They are no moor tricky than any other serve once you have seen them enough.
