Hi Alois!

When i'm about to win a set but my opponent just 1 or 2 points less than me, usually he serves the ball really fast,  so I'm shocked and of course i cannot recieve the serve well. Maybe it's easy for you (professionals), but as an amateur, i need an appropriate suggestion. Thanks!

Hi Kevin,

If this is a pattern in the games, think about taking a small step away from the table before the serve.  Don’t try to do too much with the return, just block it back or use a short simple topspin.
