Hi Abdo,

If the ball is turning from your right to left then you need to angle your bat to the left to counteract the spin.

thanks a lot but if  its a pendulum serve (i'm right handed) should i turn and play it with my forehand ?

and should i do any action or leave the ball to move itself? i mean should i take it to the left?  thanks a lot Alois you are a great coach

Hi Abdo,

Playing it with your forehand will probably give you a better angle on your racket because it will be easier to angle it to the left.  You don't need to do anything except keep the angle correct to get it back.

You should try to topspin it rather than smash it.  The backspin will drag the ball down into the net unless you put topspin on it.
