How to service a front 20 mm axle hub ?

I have a wheel on a 20 mm axle Cannondale hub. Despite the axle is well tight on the front suspension I can still play the wheel side way about 1 or 2 milimeters in each direction. Once I remove the wheel, the hub is completely close and I cannot see any evident place to adjust the hub. Please fellas, help me solving this problem. Thanks.

Sounds like its time for new bearings. Can't give specific instructions but you need to remove the spacers on each side of the hub shell pull the old bearings & press in new ones.
