Hi coach

Last night my opponent served a tomahawk serve (well at least it looked so). He did not toss the ball very high but the rest was like a tomahawk. When I touhed the ball with my racket iit sprang up high in the air. If it had gone to the right or left i would have understood but this? I dont know the right method to return it. kindly help me.

Hi Ankur,

It sounds like he was getting some topspin with his tomahawk serve.  The best way to counter it is to hit over the ball like a counterhit.  It is important to angle you bat down to make sure the topspin doesn’t take the ball off the end of the table.
