In a video, Ma Lin is shown practicing a serve in which the ball rolls back towards the net after delivering a pendulum serve. I've been trying to execute this serve for a very long time, but it never rolls back. So can somebody please help me ? I really wanna learn this..
The idea is to have a lot of backspin and not much forward momentum on the ball.
The brushing action should be right under the ball and even coming under and up the front face of the ball a little.
You can practice getting the contact correct away from the table. Just find a piece of floor and see if you can get the ball to come back to you on the floor. Once you feel comfortable doing this then you can step up to the table and give it a try.
Here are two videos to help you:
