Hi, i try doing the pendulum serve in all three variations that is sidespin, topspin and backspin.,but they all go in vain as my opponent swats them mercilessly with his backhand. No matter how low i get the serve he manages to attack it.  Where should I land the serve now.

Hi Sujeet,

You can try serving the ball half long.  Still work on keeping the ball low.  As the ball is further away from the net it is a little more difficult for him to attack.

Try this wonderful invention to see how low you can keep the ball!

I would like to thank Alois for the beautiful pendulum serve tutorial.It has improved with lot if practice and I'm winning against pple who used to beat me and look at me with disdain...The best part is they can't return any of my serves.Now i need to make the serves much better and also concentrate on the other strokes.Thanks a lot are a genius
