How will you know where will the ball go after a spin by your opponent

Hi Mark,

The first thing is by experience.  You can learn this over a period of time of returning a lot of different serves.  As a guide there are a few principles to follow.  Watch the contact of their serve very closely.  Remember, they can only contact the ball once so that contact is critical.

If they brush the ball from your left to right, it will spun to you right when you hit it and vice versa.

We have a lot of lessons on understanding spin and how to return it on our Course titled Receiving Secrets.
