When i was playing a match with my friend in the club,he did a sidespin service from his backhand(DONIC COPPA JO GOLD), which i could not receive from either backhand nor forehand. Please suggest some tricks to receive that service.

Hi Mohit,

Watch the direction the ball is going off your bat. If he is a right hander the ball will be going to your left so you need to angle your racket to the right to counteract it.  Keep it simple and see if you can get the ball back on the table using this.

We also have a lot of information on this area in our Receiving Secrets section.
