Hi, Alois/Jeff I have started to learn how to do this serve and I was wondering what is the technique to return this serve?

Hi Toby,

The serve has a lot of sidespin on it.  It can also have some backspin or topspin.  This is what you have to learn with more time returning the serve.  To allow for the sidespin angle your bat to your left.  Then to adjust to the backspin angle it up or down for the topspin.

Is there any same way to return a topspin and a backspin serve?
