1. Is this a rule in Tennis Game that the Player who serves has to serve either right handed or left handed ?.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McEnroe
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bj%C3%B6rn_Borg

Tennis Legend John a Left handed player was serving holding the Tennis racket with Left hand.

Tennis Legend Borg a Right handed player was serving holding the Tennis racket with Right hand.

Can John or Borg can serve in a single game with left hand as well as with right hand ?. Is this allowed in a Lawn Tennis Game ?.

i.e. John do a serve sometimes with a Left Hand and sometimes
also with a Right Hand in the same game.

i.e. Borg do a serve sometimes with a Left Hand and sometimes
also with a Right Hand in the same game.

If answer is Yes or No, what are the Reasons ?.

2. If the tennis game rule allows the players to do serve with both hands, are there any Tennis legends who were doing serve
with both hands ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar
