Hi coach

I would like to ask you for some tips in returning a sidespin serve. My friend does these serves quite a lot and I find it difficult them. Usually i end up losing the point.

Hi Vaidotas,

The main thing is to watch where the ball is going. If the ball is going off to your right then you should face your racket to the left.  Don't try to play across the line of the ball, just hold your bat like a wall but facing in the direction to counteract the spin.

If you need more tips there is a lot of information in our lessons on Receiving Secrets.
