Hi Alois,

i've been trying to attack the first ball of my opponents forehand side spin serve to my backhand.  What i am trying is to turn around and play the forehand topspin but it is not falling in my opponents table and always hitting the net.  Can u help me.

Hi Rohan,

Make sure firstly that you are reading the spin that he is putting on the serve.

Then you need to try and make good position and play the stroke correctly.  Also make sure you are brushing the ball on contact to generate more spin.  This will give you a better margin for error.   If you can do these things you will start to get more on the table.
