Hi Andrew,

You want to work up to being able to topspin any long serves. If you don't have a consistent forehand yet and are in an important match you can block the ball bat. You need to use your bat like a rudder to counter the sidespin. Try to place the ball to a difficult position for your opponent.

When you are practicing, work on playing a topspin against these types of serves. See if you can get a training partner to serve this to you over and over again so you can improve.
