    I can't use my backhand while flicking

    Hi, I'm a left handed player. I can BH flick to right handed players pendulum serve. But I can't BH flick to BH serves to my BH and reverse pendulum serves to my backhand. How can I flick them? What are differences of these serves?

    Where are your attempted flicks going - into the net, off the end of the table or off to one side ?
    Second/spare blade: Joola K7 with Tibhar Evolution MX-P (forehand) and MX-S (backhand)

    If it is underspin bh serve, it goes to net, if it is sidespin serve it is going out or it is going really high.

    says it's not practice if there's no counterattacking

    All right: Lefty here.

    I understand your problem because I've had it myself. We are used to serves that curve towards our elbow, so when normal right-handed pendulum serves come to us, we are used to moving the racket towards the elbow.

    When the other sidespin comes, it will be curving away from your elbow, so in order to receive those, you have to move with the ball first: away from your elbow and outwards.

    If that advice doesn't help, I highly recommend posting a video so we can give better advice.
