Hi Nicolas,

Your position is determined a lot by where your opponent is serving from.  If they are serving from a wide backhand position then you would move more towards your backhand side and vice versa.

Then think about if they are serving a lot of serves long and fast or short.  If they are serving a lot of fast long serves you can position yourself slightly further away from the table.
