Hi guys. Love your "Receiving options" Vid. If my main opponents push almost everything, should I concentrate on serving pendulum sidespin, backspin/sidespin, topspin (not very good at it, yet) or backspin serves, to get some sweet free points or sitters off my serve?

Hi Thomas,

I would serve either backspin or topspin.

If they are able to control the topspin serves and keep them low then the backspin serve may be better.  This will give you a simple push that you will be able to attack with a topspin.

If they have problems with the topspin serve and put it higher then that would be the option.  However, if they can control the backspin serve it will tend to come to you will a bit more backspin which will be harder to lift.
