Whenever while playing game, my friend does a sidespin backhand serve which i can't receive or do anything.  Please suggest few tricks to receive that serve.

Hi Mohit,

Assuming he is right handed, the ball will go off to your left when you hit it.  So you need to push the ball over to your right side.  Experiment with the angle of your racket till you start to get the ball close to the table.  It will take you a few tries but if you focus on this you will start to get them back.
