I love PingSkills videos it helped a lot in my TT.
I often find it difficulty in returning serves I tend to use forehand drive or smash, forehand flick, backhand sidespin return, backhand topspin brush or smash, I have all these shots in my mind and when the actual time comes to rerun a serve I end up in just forehand drive lose the point and I am out of control at the end.
How do I predict what type of serve I am going to receive? or is there a common return, I want to return low for all types of serves??.
Watch the ball carefully and you will pick up as early as you can the small changes in their service action that will give away what type of serve is coming. Remember they can change their serve very late in the action and they may not even know what serve they are going to do and they probably don't know how well it is going to come out.
Watching the ball is your best key.
Each type of serve needs a different response. You can't predetermine your return, that is sure to get you into trouble. The more returning you do the better you will get at this.
