Hi Luis,

Good English.

If they are doing the Pendulum serve it will probably have some sidespin on it. Use your bat like a rudder to steer the ball back.  If the ball wants to go to the right then face your racket to the left.  Don't try to do too much to the ball just use the angle of your racket to get the ball back.

If you have problems you can also purchase a copy of our Serving Secrets Revealed DVD which goes through in great detail how to return all types of serves.

Translation for Luis

"Si ellos estan haciendo el servicio de pendulo probablemente lleva sidespin. Usa la raqueta como un timon para dirigir la bola de vuelta. Si la bola tiende a irse a la derecha, entonces gira tu raqueta hacia la izquierda. No trates de hacerle mucho a la bola, solo usa el angulo de tu raqueta para devolver la bola.

Si tienes problemas tambien puedes comprar una copia de nuestro DVD "Serving Secrets Revealed" donde se muestra con gran detalle como devolver todos los tipos de servicios"
