i played with a lefty yesterday who had very good serves, fast and spinny. i never managed to find the best spot to receive, but i mainly focused on using the BH. i felt i had to stand futher back but it didn't make things easier. needless to say i had so many misshits and he got many free points. kudos to him, he himself pointed out that i better stand closer instead of further, and learn to come forward and return early, because that way i'll be able to return the ball before it gets too spinny and make the return harder. i'll appreciate more discussion on general lefty serve receiving approach, and also about this certain hard to return serve.
