I have trouble returning my opponent's serve, which is long, cross-court, heavy on backspin AND sidespin.
Do you have any clue how I could return it?
Many thanks in advance,
If the ball is long then you need to topspin it.
Firstly make sure you are getting into a good position to hit the ball. Look for the sidespin and allow for the curve of the ball. Then you need to make a fast brushing action on the return.
By brushing the ball really fast yourself you will eliminate the spin that they have put on the ball. You need to generate a lot of speed with your own racket to o this and brush the ball finely.
