Hi Sagnik,

It is usually if he can't reach a ball with his left hand he switches hand and then plays a forehands with the right hand.

I think you will agree that for most of us this isn't a shot with a good percentage success rate, Timo is such a good player. Maybe it's a skill left handers find easier.......A good chance for you to show off a bit in a video?
