1) The differences in returning sidespin/topspin, sidespin/backhand serves:

2) How to return long tricky side spin serves:

In these two videos we highlight the backhand technique and what to do. Does this help?

Just a thought, it would be nice to be able to flag videos as favourites, so it is easier to view them again later.
