I recently encounter a kind of serve. The Opponent serve a backhand serve (either top side or under side spin) on the right hand side of the table. I try to loop it, but the success rate is low and a lot of time is off the table. What is right racket angle and way to handle this serve.
It sounds like they were changing the serve spin. That means you have to adjust your return each time for the type of spin. If there is topspin you need to come more over the top of the ball. If there is backspin you need to lift the ball more.
Watch each time you return and see what happens to the ball. This will teach you each time you make a return.
There is also a lot of information in our Receiving Secrets course.
