At about 1700+ you can see return being lifted up and a little spin applied on the side spin coming from right to left. What is the correct way to return long or mid distance sidepin serves, is lifting the ball considered safe. Sometimes the long spinny serves stay very low and if you play thru' forward likely to miss it.
Yes, lifting the ball is the best way. Use a topspin stroke. The trajectory of the stroke depends on the amount and type of spin. If the ball has more backspin, then make your stroke more vertical and vice versa.
