Best Answer

According to the rules of professional tennis, yes. Many female players have used double-handed strokes on backhand shots.

You could quite possibly switch hands during a match. But if you are an advanced player and not just playing social tennis, it would be quite an insensible thing to do.

Very few players are ambidextrous, mainly because of the many hours of practice required just to learn how to use one particular hand effectively.
