I have noticed that I have a problem with sidespin service. Sometimes an opponent would give the ball both sidespin and topspin, and sometimes backspin and sidespin and also vary the length of the ball making it very difficult to return the service. Sometimes the return goes high and out of the table and sometimes hits the net. How do I improve my game against such serves?
This is also to do with the angle of your bat.
If there is topspin on the ball you need to angle the bat over the ball more and with backspin, angle it up more to counteract the backspin.
