75% forehand but as I age and mobility decreases I would suspect backhand use will increase.

Depends a lot on the opponent, but I think on average I'd play around 60% forehand.

I overwhelm my opponents with my forehand and use more controlled backhand shots to setup my forehand :devil:

I grew up trying to play like Surbek so it used to be about 85-90% FH. These days it's down to about 60%.

i'd say about 80% forehand in my ideal game.

my backhand is not my preferred wing.

50/50, I can hit with either but tend to loop more on forehand.

I play mostly backhand and like to keep forehand-centric players using their backhand as well. :D

Backhand definitely, 70/30 I think if I had to guess, including a good dose of the ole chickenwing. Like MNNB, I try to keep it off the opposition's dominant side, usually forehand. Lefthanded opponents make that "interesting", as I am lefthanded as well.

I know it's backhand, and it might always be, but I'm trying to balance it out as much as possible by working on my movement and trying to run around more shots to become less reliant on my pips.
