Question 1 - 0:35

Many people just turn around and drive my service. Where do I do the service and what should I do? Srikanth Pyaraka

Question 2 - 1:55

When looping it seems easier to wait for the ball to reach the top of the arc and start dropping before you brush it up. I hit well when the ball is rising but swing and miss a lot when I try to brush the ball after it starts dropping. Can I improve? Ken

Question 3 - 5:17

I normally stand on the left side of the table. I face difficulty if short backspin service comes to my forehand. I try to push the service and the opponent attacks with topspin. How to place the ball in such a manner so that I can attack the return? Anushka

Question 4 - 7:35

Most of my serves have sidespin but when the opponent finds an answer to return it, I'm in trouble because all the sidespin is coming back at me especially if it is pushed back. Should I stop serving with sidespin as it can make life more difficult? Thijs
