Time to revive this.
Side spin is killing me. I tried the 2 main things mentioned in this thread: move more sideways and hit more through the ball with racket angle in countering direction.
But the problems are many. The ball movement in the air and after the bounce disorients me. I can see the spin axis angled to the court and it makes me dizzy. When I make contact, the racket feels like it is getting wrenched sideways and I lose all power and control. And on top of this, the ball kicks in a weird way compared to just top spin.
This is getting to be very problematic even as all other aspects of my game are coming under control.
