Hi Michael,

If the serve is long it is best to make a topspin.  If it is short then you can push it or flick it because it has sidespin.

Decide which you are more comfortable with and also which return suites the rest of the really for you.  By pushing you get a push ball back or a topspin.  If you flick then the rally will be open straight away.
