i usually use a drop shot return against short/half long serves and when i feel like it a topspin too. but against long serves, im rendered useless because of my bh's ineffectiveness... this applies to any long short/half long but fast serves too. i cant push these short and my opponents finish the point.
What options do i have to return these serves? also how to return a long fast serve? and do u have any tips as to how i can bring my bh topspin up to mark (my coach suggested i learn a new stroke.)
If the ball is long you should not try to make a short push. This is too difficult to do. Make a topspin off this sort of serve. You should make sure your backhand topspin stroke has the right basics. Take a look at the lesson we have on our Lessons page on the Backhand topspin. Just keep working on this stroke and eventually you will get it right.
