How do I return a fast sidespin topspin. I find myself standing still because the curve of the sidespin and the speed of the topspin and the sidespin topspin is always low on the table.

Hi Tri,

I find it easiest to put a bit of sidespin back on the ball.  It will feel like it keeps low because it doesn't have as much topspin as a straight topspin forehand.  If you are both right handers then you are coming around the outside of the ball and the ball is coming into your bat.
