Hi Roger,

I think that making a sidespin back is one of the easiest ways to deal with it.  Take a look at our lesson on the Sidespin Forehand Topspin.  In there Jeff is blocking the ball.  You can do this but you need to allow for the sidespin by angling your bat slightly.  So if the ball is going to spin off to your left, you need to face the bat to the right and vice versa.
