- Here is the TRUTH!
Player with the stronger forehand plays in the deuce court.
This is one of the biggest myths not just in doubles but in the whole game of tennis.
If I had some money for every time I heard someone ask the question, "do you want to play on the forehand or backhand!, I would be very, very, very rich.
What people should be saying is do you want to be on the deuce or advantage court.
The problem here is a simple one, most people go with the assumption that if you have a stronger backhand then they should play in the advantage court or the left court.
It also applies if you think you have a stronger forehand, you should play in the deuce court (on the right) assuming we have two right handers.
This logic is flawed.
