Hi, I am an attacking player, but I struggle against players who have a good return that bounces high with a lot of side spin, any tips.

Hi Gordon,

The main thing is to wait and watch the spin on the ball.  They are giving you plenty of time to see what is happening.  Use that time to get into position and then use a topspin attack.  Make sure you are brushing the ball fast enough to counteract the spin on the ball.  If you hit the ball softly, the sidespin will take effect and drag the ball where your opponent wants it.  By brushing the ball fast yourself you are giving the ball the spin that you want and can place the ball where you want it to go.

Countering with topspin is the key.
