I have a friend who plays at my level but he always beats me due to his serve which is very rapid and a bit spiny

What he does is keeps his hand in the topspin postion near the tabel (still) and then he takes the ball in the other hand and hits the bat with the ball and the ball comes very rapidly and then I can't hit it and whenever I there comes a lot of pressure on the bat and the ball goes somewhere outside the tabel or hits the net.

Hi Atharva,

Take half a step away from the table.  This will give you a little more time.  Then you need to brush the ball upwards a little more to lift it over the net.
