Hey pingskills. I've been having a lot of trouble lately returning low tomahawk serves and I just can't figure out what to do. Any advice?

Hi Evan,

What is happening when you try to receive them?  If the ball is going up, it will be a matter of coming over the ball more. Remember they can't generate as much spin with the tomahawk because of the lack of wrist movement.  Maybe you are playing for too much spin.

Don't try to do too much with the return.  Try to get the ball back effectively into a position that will be advantageous for you.  This could be a short push, a long fast push or a flick.
