I have a problem in returning fast tomahawk and reverse tomahawk serves. Could you please help me?

Hi Rodney,

The most important thing with being able to return any serve is to to see it as many times as you can.  The more you see it the easier it will become.

Watch the contact of the server.  You know they will both have sidespin, one going one way and the other the other direction.

The difficult part is often to tell if they have some backspin or topspin on them as well.  See if you can watch the ball and the flight it takes and can recognise any differences with the different spins.  The topspin bad will tend to dip quicker whereas the backspin ball will tend to float a little more.
