Cheong-Eui Kim is an Ambidextrous Tennis Player

What do you do if you can’t/don’t want to play a backhand? For Cheong-Eui Kim, the answer is simple: play a forehand instead. The Korean top 1000 player is known for his ambidexterity, the ability to play left and right-handed and the below video demonstrates his unique qualities.

His ITF player page states his preferred way of playing is right-handed but he’s more than capable with the left, even serving with both hands. To date, Cheong-Eui has yet to reach a grand slam or win an ITF title since 2018 but it’s cool to watch a player switch hands during a rally.
