How to do reverse pendulum spin (ghost spin)

Hi Aashish,

This is a really difficult serve to do because of the angle you need to get your wrist into to make it happen.  Te get enough backspin for the ball to come back to you you really need to bend your wrist so that your fingers are almost touching your wrist and get a good contact on the ball.

Give it a try away from the table first and see if you can get the ball to spin back to you on the floor.  If you can do this then try it near the table.  It is possible but will take a while to get it right.
