Hi Uday,

You need to watch for the subtle changes in topspin and backspin that you can put with the sidespin.  Watch when they are contacting the ball.  If they contact it earlier in their swing it will tend to have topspin and sidespin.  If they hit it later then it will tend to have backspin.  Also watch the flight of the ball after the contact.  With time this will give you more information as well.

It is also a serve that isn't used as much so it may take time to get the feel of the spin that they are putting on the ball.
