    hmm, for those who said that they could do the tsubame gaeshi or claimed that it is possible to be done, could someone explain it in detail? Like do you use the eastern or western grip? Or when should it be hit? In front of you? right beside you? Cuz I would like to try it myself, even if it does bounce...

    You're right... I do think it's possible to hit a tannhauser serve or ever a "tannhauser smash" (yeah, yeah I know cool drive...) if you accoplish to have the ball change shape PROPPERLY. But come to think about it...chances are that not even in a million serves you'll get the ball to acquire enough spin to change shape, and this shape change must be able to make the ball bounce irregularly so that it goes touching the ground, and fast enough. It's a chance dependable shot to me... i'd even say under these circumstances that it's impossible.

    Tannhauser... you can pretty much just hit it using an insane slice spin on the ball. The more spin, the less it'll bounce. I think that's right [and logical...].

    Tsubame Gaeshi, like Ryoma's Cool Drive, is most likely impossible [unless you can get EVERY single condition needed to use it].
    - For instance, the ball has to be hit pretty high above the net on your side
    - the ball being hit back need topspin
    - you need to hit an offensive slice [backhand slice can be used for more spin]

    that's not all... there are probably quite a bit more intricacies that we don't know about.

    Yeah.......But the thing is that it wouldn't be a tannhauser serve as Majinx said...it would just be a serve with a low bouncing effect due to spin... but not be cause of an irregular bounce...

    about 3/4 of the moves in this manga are impossible. I think I saw earlier that someone said you can do the zero shiki, which is just total BS. do any of you even watch tennis? You have any idea how much the zero shiki would've been abused if it was possible?

    I think the question we should be asking is which moves can actually be done in real life? And don't give me that c&4p "but it still bounces...although its a very very small distance and...."

    If so, it was either on accident, or they were trying to do some stupid trick and it ended up working. The move itself would not work in a real tennis match unless someone was extremely lucky. Ever notice how no matter where anyone smashes the ball in PoT, Fuji is ALWAYS there? Yeah, it's not that easy to move from one end of the court to the other spin around and return a smash so that it lands perfectly behind the opponent on the line....

    I think we can all agree that Fuji's counters can't be done in real life... a hopping ball which has enough backspin to come back to Suusuke's court? A ball that doesn't bounce at all? A smash eater that magicly trows the ball so it lands just on the baseline...EVERYTIME EVERYWHERE? A shot that engulfs spins and cretes an illusion return? If you're looking for reality there's ESPN...
