Hello guys!

I just watch world cup final Wang Hao against Jike Zhang. Both of them tend  flick from serves with their backhand even the serve is deep in the middle or even sometimes in the forehand corner. Is it easier to flick with backhand?

Hi Mindaugas,

Some players have better touch on the backhand than the forehand.  It is just a preference.  Some serves you may find easier to flick with forehand rather than backhand or vice versa.  There are also top players that prefer their forehand flick to the backhand.

Try both sides when you are training against different serves and see which is more comfortable for you.
