Hi Alois and Jeff,

How to analyze my opponent's serve. Will it be a short one or a long one? Especially when my opponent applies the long backspin serves. I am surprised and not ready enough to move back a little bit from the table and return them.

Thank you very much
Regards, Archel

Hi Archel,

The most important thing is to watch the ball.  By doing this you will see the contact and also the swing of the server.  Through this information you will start to pick up the cues of your opponent.  The more you see a serve the better you will get at seeing the cues.

You don’t need to think too much about this, but just watch the ball and things will start to get easier.
