Hi coach, ur videos inspire me alot ;)

i have problem with My opponent serve, he serve very fast, much spin n power...he always serve to My backhand side(very near side table), when i touch it the ball flies away from the table, sometime i return it but the ball flies very high to him n he finish it with a smash and i lost point everytime, i even cant control the ball :( we called it evil balls hehe

what should i do???maybe My position Wrong??? 

thx before ;)

Hi Zackriyya,

You can try to stand a little further from the table.  This will give you more time to see the ball.

You can also take a look at this previous Ask the Coach question on How to return a long sidespin serve.

If the ball is going into the net, make your stroke more vertical.  Still get a brushing contact on the ball to give it topspin as well.
