Players Who are Right/Left Handed but Play With Their Left/Right Hand?

Somebody brought this up in another thread, by stating that Escude is a lefty who plays right. I wonder if he wasn't forced to switch (as is not uncommon with natural lefties), or if it was natural for him?

Nadal is a right hander who plays tennis left, and apparently Moya is like Escude.

Any other examples?

Myself, I'm a natural lefty, but I play racquet sports right. I inured my left wrist in gymnastics when I was younger, so I compensated by using my right wrist more. Thats been my stronger arm since.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Jose Acasuso too.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Which is he? A righty who plays left, or a lefty who plays right?

I lack direction.

I have to ask, because I've only actually seen him play once.... and I"m too lazy to look up his stats at the moment to see which hand he plays with.

I lack direction.

THanks I just needed to know what hand he played with.. I assumed right... but wasn't sure

It sounded like a dumb question... but really... it wasn't

I lack direction.

Escude was taught to play right-handed from childhood.

On the womens tour Kimiko Date and Sabine Applemans were examples of this except Date was left handed and played right-handed and Applemans was the exact opposite.
