There are two players they play with phantom rubber on their backhand and on forehand they use mark v. Which serve should I use against these players. and on balls just above the net height they smash that ball flat. how can I block these flat shots.

Hi Nikhil,

I think the best serve to these players is to do a backspin serve to their phantom rubber.  This will give you a topspin ball back that you can attack.

The key to their flat forehand is prevention.  Try to keep the ball lower and with a bit of backspin so that it is too difficult for them to attack.

As simple as it seems, aim lower.  Take a look at our lesson on Keeping The Ball Low.  This will help.
