hello coach,

as the title explains i want to know how to receive a spinny serve. usually when i try to do so, it results in a weaker return.

Hi Utkarsh,

Firstly it is about understanding the spin that is on the ball and how to deal with it.

The best thing is to use your racket like a rudder to steer the ball back.

We have a section on the website devoted to this topic.  You will find a lot of information in our Receiving Secrets lessons about how to recognise spin as well as how to return it effectively.
