I think I have been struggling in pushing a ball short while receiving serves when the ball has a heavy amount of backspin. I just go with an open angle blade and try to lift the ball but the backspin on the ball makes it bounce back from the bat very quickly and it goes longer by itself. This allows the opponent to loop it. What adjustment to do to handle such heavy backspin serves?
Focus on keeping your hand relaxed. You don’t need much forward momentum with your hand. Just let the ball touch your bat. All you need to do is provide the correct angle of the bat for it to go back on the table and very low over the net. It requires a lot of touch and so a lot of practice.
