I am using Challenger Attack Short Pimples rubber for backhand.  How to receive side spin services.  When I receive easily they are attacking or my return is ballooning.

Hi Bala,

With the short pimples you can think about flicking the return.  Take a look at our lesson on the Backhand Flick.

Play more forward on the ball.  The short pimples will absorb some of the spin.  Be quite firm with your strokes or they will balloon.
