Hi Alois and Pingskills
generally when i'm in the serve i can win the point, because my loop is very effective, and i develop this with a lot of training, but my weakness is when i am recieving and my opponent make the third ball attack, the same problem i don't know where will go the ball. My question is, i can develop this with a lot of training or help the talent in this situation?
It sounds like you are progressing well. Keep working on your serve and third ball attack as this will serve you well.
As for returning, as you get more confident you can try returning the ball short. This will stop your opponent attacking. However it's not possible to do this all the time so you will need to learn how to block their third ball attack.
To get better at reading where the ball will go, you need to watch the ball really closely. Even though your are focussing on the ball, you'll start to pick up signals with your peripheral vision. As you play more and more these signals will help you to know where your opponent is going to hit the ball. A lot of people think the great players have better reflexes but often they actually have more time because they see earlier where their opponent is hitting the ball.
You still need to work on your block and the more training you have, the better your block will get.
