Hi Sally,

Your first option is to use a backhand or Forehand Flick. You need to try and hit the ball at the top of the bounce to give you the best margin for error.

If the ball is really low and short, then you may want to push the ball back short and then hope that you get a long ball from our opponent which you can attack with a topspin.
