You are at a huge disadvantage when returning a serve.

  1. The server gets to hit the ball at you as hard as they can.
  2. The server gets to hit the serve directly at your weakness.
  3. You occupy the worst position in the court.
  4. If your opponent wins the rally, you will lose a point.

So a good return of service will allow you to get in front of  your opponent and force them to make a shot from the back of the court. Generally speaking, the most effective way to accomplish this is to return the serve with a ceiling ball.

It is vital to be in a ready position when returning the serve. Your racquet needs to be up in front of you at chest level and held with a backhand grip.
