Hi alois, when my opponents serve, my footwork is at forehand position and my opponent will give a pendulum to backhand, how to shift position to have a stronger backhand?

Hi Nathan,

This could be as simple as putting your right leg closer to the table so you are in a better stance to make a backhand.  When they set up for a Pendulum serve, the natural angle is to your backhand, so set yourself up in that position.  Let me know if this helps.
