How to return short backspin serves

Subscribe  Online coaching

In this video I explain how to return short backspin serves. This is a very common serve and fairly straight forward to get back over the net. But there is a real skill in returning this serve well and putting the server under pressure.

In the video I look at three main options for returning a short backspin serve – a touch return, a push return or a flick return. I explain the benefits of each option and also briefly describe how to do each shot.

If you want a more detailed explanation on how to do a touch shot, deep push or flick, then take a look at these videos…

Thank you to Ferenc Horvath for demonstrating how to return a short backspin serve in this video. You can find out more about Ferenc on his website:
