Since I am an intermediate level player & after serving backspin/side-back spin serve the attacker has 2 options:-

01. Loop the third ball with max. top spin and then attack the 5th ball

02. Drive the third ball.

Out of above which should be practiced more and is more accurate?

Hi Ravi,

You need to practice both because they are needed in different circumstances.

the two variations along side each other will make it more difficult for your opponent to block.  If you only have one it will make it easier for your opponent to get used to your shot.
