I know how difficult this is from experience but don't let it get in your way. There really is nothing technical to do about this problem- my BEST and very IMPORTANT advice I have for you is to keep your eye on the ball and your feet moving. Doing this will 1) focus your concentration and keep you from being surprised with the ball's direction and 2) enable you to reach the ball where ever it decides to spin to. We all know that on a slice the ball tends to take a weird spin once it hits the ground but use those two pieces of advice and you will be much more comfortable returning those shots!
