I struggle to read my opponent's spin and my flick always ends up in the net, any tips how can I read my opponent's spin in serves?

If I cannot see the serve or my opponent is blocking the serve with their body or hand can I complain?

Hi Clement,

The main thing is to watch the ball as carefully as you can.  If the Flik is going into the net all the time, think about pushing the return. It may have heavy backspin.

If you can't see the contact of the serve you have the right to bring it to the attention of the umpire.  It is still then the umpire's call as to whether the serve is legal or not.
