My question about returning swing is that when someone chop or serve backspin toward my body or in my zone than i can easily counter it using backhand chop. But when it is away from body then it become very difficult to return that spin. So how i can deal with it....?

Hi Abdul,

The first thing would be to adjust your position so that the ball is closer to you.

Also think about making a topspin stroke against this type of ball.  When the ball is a little further away you can get a good swing at the ball.  Take a look at the tutorial on Forehand Topspin Off Backspin.
