Hi Alois,

I use the pendulum and the reverse pendulum services in my play. I'm also a very forehand oriented player and my rivals know this -- they often return my services with backspin to my backhand to force me to pivot. How can I "enforce" the service return to my forehand?

Hi Ilia,

It is difficult to make them hit it to one position but think about the placement of your serves.  Remember a lot of players will return cross court so if you want the ball to come to your forehand side, serve the ball more to their forehand corner.
