Position of Bat for Blocking - 11:00

Mike: The advice you gave me on blocking slow loops has helped. I have another question, I hold the paddle around the 3:00 position for the backhand as the ball nears my body, I noticed that when you hold the paddle, it's at the 12:00 position, which is better?

Returning Fast Serve to the Backhand - 13:52

Eugene: I am having a real trouble returning this serve. Not that I'm not use to the spin, but he usually serves long, fast and deep into my backhand and making me play an awkward shot.

Returning serves before year 2000 - 18:40

Yap: I am curious about how you return serves before 2000 when a new rule says that you cannot block the contact of the ball when serving. Before that you cannot watch the contact of the ball as your opponent may have blocked the contact with their arm.
