returning long spin serves

Table Tennis Service Return

you guys are doing a great job, keep  up the good work.

I have a real problem returning serves-fast side spin ones, especially fast serves coz while playing with a smasher, i end up giving him a very easy third shot to smash back (generally my returns end up in the middle of the table and bounce off for him to chop), if i chop it generally ends in the net or goes out? so what is a good strategy?

should i try returning with a flat bat?

once again, keep up the good work and all the best!

You should keep trying to attack these serves.  Practice this skill a lot and see if you can get better at it.  It is what will progress you to a higher level. 

If you keep pushing the return it will always end with the server gaining the attack too easily.

Thanks for your kind wishes.
