Hi I want to ask how to return topspin serves more effectively because the only way i know and use is just blocking.The problem is that with this serves my opponents easily take the opportunity to attack.

Hi Alexander,

A more effective way is to use the Forehand Flick.  This will get the ball travelling faster as is a more attacking stroke that you will be able to cut down your opponents time.

Basically it is a short forehand stroke.  Give it a try and see how it works.

What to do if the serve is wide and long and you don't expect it?

Watching the ball is important to tell its direction  If the ball is wide and long you should try to attack it with a topspin.
