Hi Binod,

The first thing is to be able to read the spin well.  If you can do this then the rest becomes a lot easier.

If the return is always going high rather than into the net, you need to change the angle of your bat.  Face it a little more down.  You can also think about having a softer, more relaxed hand.  This will help to dampen the spin on the ball.

Try these two things first.

We have a DVD available on this specific topic.  You can purchase Receiving Secrets Revealed DVD through our website.  It has a very good break down of how to read spin and then ways to return several types of serves.
