[tennisbiz] Re: Question about 2-handed forehand

From: Kal Moranon <>
Date: Fri 20 May 2005 22:46:35 -0700 (PDT)

Hi : I too have been teaching a boy who started 2
hands both sides. I've been teaching tennis for over
20 years and have seen it all(40+years worth). When
this boy started to get better everyone questions me
of my decision to keep him 2 hands both sides. I just
point out to him and all those who questions me,that
everything and everyone has their strengths and
weaknesses. So you must understand why the 2hands is
better and what is the weakness of using 2hands.
So from there,we focus on the weakness and made his
footwork awesome. Now the strength of the 2 handed
forehand(overlapping with the left hand on top),is
that this kid can hit the most unbelievable crosscourt
angle shots that no 1 handed player can match. Great
for passing and pulling the opponent off the
court.Another thing is the disguise factor. Right now
it's not that big of a deal but when you get to
pro-level this will be another awesome thing to watch
for.With 2 hands,he can delay a topspin lob, delay a
down the line open stance or closed stance shot,and he
does this crazy thing with a slice where he lets go
with the right hand and uses the left hand like a
back-hand slice(which is more natural to do). Not to
mention a killer stop and drop dropshot.
So there you go,have fun and keep inventing. I tell
the kid that all greatness comes from uniqueness. You
be your own man and it's ok to be different,just know
your limitations and there is no limitations... KalM.
