Why professional player for receiving serves stand on the corner of the table not on the middle of the table?

Hi Erfan,

A lot of players start in that position to move into the receiving position and be mobile when making the return. You often see that they move into a more central position even before the server hits the ball.

If the ball comes long in the middle they will often use their forehand.
