This can be a difficult ball. I find that if you get your footwork right you are half way there. When we step around the corner of the table you can move one foot out wide. If the ball is wide to the backhand you need to move your left leg out as wide as the ball is coming. Similarly if the ball is going wide to the forehand you need to move your right leg wide out to the width of the ball. This one wide step allows you to get back into position easily.
You can let the ball drop but one of the keys here is that you need to make the topspin return either low or spinny or both. Also look to position the ball well. You won't be able to hit the ball fast from that position so placement is vital. I guess it requires a bit of touch to get it right.
