Wrist strength does not have a lot to do with generating spin. It is more to do with the relaxation in the wrist and the contact.
Player A is stil brushing the ball heavily but is also hitting the ball fast. The speed of the ball also adds a bit of heaviness to it especially with backspin. You need to lift that ball a little more.
You need to persevere with watching the serevs and watching your returns carefully.
As you sdai it is good if you can topspin them. It doesn't necessarily require a big loop, but a gentle brushing contact on the loop to start to put your own spin on it rather than the spin that the server has put. The shorter the amount of time the ball is on your rubber the less effect it will have.
Learning to receive serves is a long process. We will have our Returning Secrets DVD out next month.
