Hi Hans,

When serving you should try to be really close to the table so that they have less time to be able to see the spin and placement.

In general you should try to be as close to the table as you can to give the opponent less time.  If the other player is attacking then you may need to move back from the table.  Always try to maintain the attacking position.

Take a look at our lesson on the Ready Position. This will give you a few tips as well.
