Hi Brahma,

The key factor here is to watch the angle of the bat when the ball is hit.  If they brush under the ball or down on the ball then it is backspin and so on.

Returning can be complex but this topic is covered in great detail in our Receiving Secrets Revealed DVD.  We talk about the concept of using your bat like a rudder and show you how to do it.

If you want to be able to read spin then I highly recommend Receiving Secrets Revealed DVD. It breaks down several aspects of how to watch and return serves.
