Hi, in my office there’s a guy who does lolipop serve. When I play as his opponent, I can never return his serves specially the sidespin ones. How can I return those serves?

Hi Inan,

The main things when returning sidespin serves is to adjust the angle of your racket to account for the sidespin.  Don't try and do too much with the return.  If the sidespin is carrying the ball to the left, angle your racket to the right and vice versa.

Take a look at the tutorial on Returning Spin Serves as part of our Training 101 section.
