First of all I would like to congratulate you for the silver play button.

Coming back to my question.

I am facing some problem in flicking an incoming sidespin or underpin serve. The ball either goes to the net or goes out leading me to lose crucial points.

Pls help

Hi Harkaran,

Thanks for your kind words.

The main thing with the flick is to get your wrist right back at the start of the stroke. Then you need to allow for the subtle changes in the spin by altering the angle of your racket.  The flick isn't an easy stroke but it is worth pursuing.  Focus on each ball and try to get the feel of the spin on the incoming serve.
