How to return such kind of backhand serve with your forehand nice and low and also tell me the kind of spin on the ball ? 

Note : I am a right handed player

Hi Haseeb,

One of the important things is to get close to the ball for the return of this serve.  The ball is shining away from your forehand.  Then allow for the sidespin on the ball by angling your racket back, or facing towards your right hand side.  There can also be either backspin or sidespin on this serve so you need to watch the contact of the server to be able to check what spin is on the ball.  IF there is backspin, turn your bat backwards a little to face the roof.  IF there is topspin you can use the Forehand Flick.
