when i receive a side spin serve can i play a counter hit? And can i push it like a regular ball or should i do something in the angle? can i make the bat vertical when receiving or it should be horizontal? and how should my wrist start and finish position for the push and the top spin and the flick and the counter hit for the fore and the back hand? so sorry for these all questions .............

Hi Abdelrahman,

You can counterhit or push if it is pure sidespin.  For both of the strokes you need to adjust for the amount of sidespin on the ball.

We have a series of lessons designed to help players like you to learn about returning serves.  Take a look at what is available on our Receiving Secrets lessons.
