Hi Alois and Jeff. 

I live in Winnipeg (Canada).

I am having trouble in receiving mixed spin serves against a left handed player.

The serves are:

- Pure sidepin serve

-Pure under spin serve

- Sidespin mixed with underspin serve 

- No spin serve

The problem arises when the contact of the ball on the rubber is hidden by him in a very deceiving manner. I am used to playing only against right handed players. I asked my coach and he said that the way he decieves the opponent is legal in table tennis.

Pls help me .

Hi Harkaran,

You should be able to see the contact of the ball when he serves.
