I know exactly what you are talking about here. I have sat frustrated and watched many of my school students fall for that one.
If the ball is high enough you can smash it but you do have to adjust your bat angle to allow for the spin. Try to make a good crisp contactwith the ball tso that you don't allow the ball to sink into the rubber and spin. Probably the safest option though is to topspin the ball. Even though the ball is high you still need to lift the topspin a little to allow for the backspin.
