Hi Kenji,

It sounds like there may be some variations of the spin on the sidespin serves the you are getting.

If the serve is long then the topspin is the best option to return.  If you brush the ball fast you will counteract the spin that is on the ball whether it has sidespin with topspin or sidespin with backspin.

Take a look at this tutorial on Returning a Long Sidespin Serve which I think will also help.
