Hi Alois

I am a pretty good player but i don't return serves with my forehand very good , and i saw that when professional players are getting the serve to their forehand area than they often turn and return it with their backhand.

I'm not a very very quick player but i have a good backhand, so should i start practicing returning serves that come to my forehand with my backhand or should i need to practice more the forehand return?

Hi David,

I would give the backhand return a try if that is what you feel most comfortable with.

Take a look at our lesson on the Backhand Sidespin Flick.  One key element is that once you have made the stroke you will need to recover quickly into your ready position.
