Hi Alois and Jeff
I have the habit of receiving my serves with my forehand only; I do not know how to receive (short serves) with a backhand push/flick. Even though it hasn't caused me any problems so far, watching so many people using backhand sidespin flicks and backhand receives (which have a lot of spin) got me curious: am I missing out? And is this a legit way of playing which can get me to a higher level?
Using your forehand only is a legitimate way of returning so if this suits your game, then keep doing it.
It would be good to develop your backhand return a little as an alternative.
