Hi Martin,

Wait till the ball comes long on the table and then use the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin technique to return the ball.  Brush through the ball fast.  This will negate the sidespin on the ball to a certain extent.  If the ball is going off to the side still then adjust the angle of your bat to face the opposite side.  Still make sure you are maintaining correct technique with the stroke though.
