Hi Harkaran,

The thing with the pendulum serve is that it isn't really 1 serve. The server can place many different spins on each serve which makes them react differently off your bat. So the real key is to read what type of spin the server is putting on the bat. Then you can adjust your return to counter that spin.

A good place to start learning more about this is our Introduction to Receiving module.

Let me know if this helps.
