How to return the wind shield wiper serve
The Windshield wiper serve will have sidespin on it.
It can also have some backups or topspin it. They key is to recognise how much of each of these spins there is on the ball to make it easier to return.
I find it a difficult one to read exactly how much backspin or topspin there is on the ball. You need to watch carefully and also gain experience against the serve.
Then utilise the angle of your racket to counter the spin that is on the ball. From a right hander the spin will drag the ball to your right so you need to angle the ball more to your left. Then for the topspin or backspin you need to angle your bat down if there is topspin and up if there is backspin.
