How do I play a left-hander?
Read Tim Garner's advice.

Reverse your normal strategy (much of which is probably fairly automatic), e.g. serve from the left-hand box to their backhand, play wider when you hit cross-court to their forehand as they will have bigger reach and an effective tactic is to attack high to their back-hand. Your backhand short balls should be more effective as it is much harder to move into that corner as a left-hander. It will also help to find a left-handed player to hit with during training, so that you can get used to some of the challenges they present.

Another thought is to play your normal game but beware their strong forehand on the left. Move forward a little on that side, be ready for unexpected shots, such as early volleys and hard drives.
