Forwards it is a whole different story.
How can it not be a big deal? I know these guys are pros but if you switched the sides Suter and Weber play on, they would be less effective because the passing they are able to do now, which is all on the forehand would be harder to do if they switched sides because all their passing would be from their backhand or by different positioning which doesn't seem natural.
