One of my opponents serves a tomahawk topspin sidespin serve from his forehand corner. I am totally unable to keep this ball on table. What should i do?
To return this serve you need to come over the ball to counteract the topspin. You also need to angle your bat to your right to counter the sidespin on the ball. It may take a little experimenting to get the angle just right but if you keep working on it you will get there. Don't try to do too much with the return. Just let the angle of your bat work for you.
Experiment to see whether it is easier for you to return it with your forehand or backhand. See which feels like a more comfortable angle for you to have your bat on.
