You often come back to the point that if you make a really spinny topspin stroke, you will neutralise your opponent's spin, which is for example useful when you didn't quite manage to read their long serve.
Does the same hold true for backspin or sidespin? If you get a really fine and fast brush, will it counter their spin in the same way as a heavy topspin?
Yes this is a good way of counteracting spin as well. However the backspin and sidespin is not as accurate as the topspin and you won’t be able to hit the return as fast. This will give your opponent more time to see the return and counter it with an attacking stroke of their own.
