Hi Saurabh,

If your opponent serves fast you must play an attacking stroke.  If the ball is fast it will usually feel heavy, like it has backspin, so you need to use topspin to lift the ball over the net.

The first thing to do is to make sure you move into position.  The natural reaction is to move your bat first.  Try to resist this and move your feet before your bat does anything.

Take a look at the video we have on basic moving.  This may help you.
