Hi Pralhad,

It is probably best with a flick.  You will need to move a little to the side to give yourself some space to make the shot.  It doesn't matter if you prefer backhand or forehand.  Then use the techniques we show you in the lesson on the Forehand Flick or the Backhand Flick.

Hi Eshaan,

You need to brush the ball fast to generate a lot of spin.  You also need a thin contact to get the ball to spin.  If you want sidespin then you can brush the ball more on the side of the ball.  We cover these principles comprehensively in our Serving Secrets lessons.
