Hi Gau,

It is best to push this ball back.  The sidespin serve you could also flick if the ball was suitable for you but you are better off to play a short push ball back.

For the backspin serve you need to angle your bat up to counter the backspin on the ball.  For the sidespin, angle your bat to the side to counter the sidespin on the ball.

For more in depth information you can also get a copy of the Receiving Secrets Revealed DVD.
