Hello Alois and Jeff :) One day I was playing with a woman (in 1982 she won first place in Yugoslavia) and she was playing a very good serve. The racket goes up in front her eyes and than goes down. I don't know what serve is that (but it is very cool and when I hit the ball with racket, the ball goes sideway) so I would like to know what serve is that and how is it perform.

I am big fan of pingskills, so go ahead like that because your trainings helps many young men to learn how to play ping pong in a very short time and become later a good ping pong players.

HI Daniel,

It is some sort of sidespin serve.  What you can do to help you get it back is if the ball goes to the left, then face your bat to the right and vice versa.

Do not try to do too much with the ball just use the angle of the racket to steer it back onto the table.

She must be a very good player.  if you see her again, ask her if she can help you with it.
