I am an offensive player. I like to attack servers. But unable to attack backhand sidespin service (with  forehand).

Hi Kareem,

What is the main issue you are facing? Is it that the ball goes wide off the table, or are you having trouble because the ball is spinning away from you? If it's because the ball is spinning away, you need to try and move a bit further to your right so the ball will curve into your hitting zone. Another thing to try is waiting a bit longer and hitting the ball a bit later (or you could step in closer) as this will put the ball into a better spot to counter the sidespin. Let me know if that helps.
