Whenever I do a push, and I return back to my normal position, the ball gets flicked at me with good power. How do I counter a flick after pushing the ball short and using a short serve with spin?

-Thanks, Jason

Hi Jason,

The key is to get the push lower with more backspin.  This will make it more difficult for your opponent to flick the ball fast at you.

If you are finding that in a match your opponent is flicking well, it may be better to push the ball deep and fast with backspin.
