How do I return a slice in ping pong?

I’ve been having trouble returning a short heavy sidespin and backspin service from a player who likes to place it to my backhand.  When I tried pushing it short to his backhand or forehand, he would flick it back and end up winning the point.  He is also very proficient at looping on both sides so pushing it long is out of the question.  I’ve tried to banana flick (backhand sidespin flick) but the ball would go into the net since the backspin was so heavy and the ball was so low.  He told me that I should try to contact the ball (when performing the banana flick) on the side to generate the sidespin and avoid the heavy backspin but I don’t see how the physics would work in returning it?  Is this the correct method to perform the flick against the heavy underspin?

Of course … although your service can bounce more than once on your opponent’s side of the table, if it does, you win the point because your opponent must hit it before it bounces twice. This means that you can choose whether to serve “short” or “long”.
