I have a problem with returning long services on my backhand.
Most opponents don't discover this weakness but when someone discovered it, I have a big problem. Then he plays long services on my backhand and I have not the power to return with a strong backhand topspin. Instead of I play a slow backhand topspin and now the opponent can take the offensive.
I'm almost 2m tall so to turn the backhand to play forehand topspin is not so easy for me and also slow too.
When desperated I use the backhand defense stroke to return long services. But are there better options to improve my situation?
It is better to develop your topspin against this ball. Try taking half a step back from the table if they are serving a lot of these serves to you.
