Hi Atharva,

It sounds like he may be using a change between some backspin and topspin.  You need to watch the contact carefully and the flight of the ball.  If there is backspin then lift the ball and if there is topspin come ver your return more.  It is also better to play your shot with a bit of topspin as well to give the stroke more safety and allow it to dip onto the table.
