Ambidextrous 12-Year-Old Tennis Player With Two Forehands Goes Viral

Ambidextrous 12-Year-Old Tennis Player With Two Forehands Goes Viral

Teodor Davidov has well and truly sent the tennis world into meltdown.

At just 12 years of age, he's clearly a talented player to look out for in the future.

But it seems he possesses one signature move in particular that separates him from the rest of the chasing pack.

A video has emerged on social media of young Davidov competing at an under-12s junior tournament in America and it makes for pretty impressive viewing.

What makes the clip so incredible isn't the fact that Davidov's technique is absolutely flawless, it's that he effortlessly produces two forehands - a left-handed one and a right-handed one.

That's right, instead of switching to a backhand like every professional player on the planet does, the youngster simply passes the racquet into his other hand and does a forehand stroke instead.

And his forehands are hit with such power and precision that you actually have no idea what his 'strong' hand is.

Unsurprisingly, Davidov's unique but highly impressive technique sent tennis fans into a frenzy on social media.

"To have two forehands and to hit them both this well is amazing," tennis commentator Blair Henley said.

"To be a true switch hitter on the serve is next level. He's in the 12s?!"

Former player-turned-tennis administrator Paul McNamee also chimed in.

"I've always felt that is the next development in tennis... having two 'King' forehands," he tweeted.

"Just imagine facing Rafa's forehand on both sides... too good. You will see it one day."

And McNamee is probably right, it's only a matter of time before we see the youngster going toe-to-toe with some of the biggest tennis players on the planet.

But for now, we're just happy to sit back and watch his incredible switch-hitting highlights.
