Hi Kjell,

You have a famous Table Tennis name.

To counter a sidespin topspin try to play a topspin but allow for the sidespin on the ball by using the angle of your racket. I find it easiest to do a siespin topspin back in most cases because this also counters the sidespin on the ball.

This is a very advanced stroke and is something that will come with time and a lot of playing experience.
