    Default POT's tennis moves

    well i was actually thinking of making a new thread but i cant think any topic but now i actually found out a nice topic we can talk about, i was thinking that we can talk about the various tennis moves in the POT universe.

    name:
    Twist serve

    Description:
    A Twist serve is thrown somewhat behind the server's head, and the racquet brushes the ball from the 8 o'clock position to the 2 'clock position, imparting a combination of topspin and sidespin that makes the ball go in an angled arc over the net. Upon bouncing, it jumps high and to the side in the direction of the server's racquet arm. For example, if a right hander hits a Twist serve to the ad (backhand) court, it will jump away from the center of the court.
    (i got this at wikipedia)

    facts:
    -this serve is mainly use as a second serve by most pros
    -also known as the kick serve

    who uses this on POT:
    -Ryoma Echizen
    -Ibu Shinji
    -Kirihara Akaya(anime only)

    Tsubame Gaeshi (Swallow Return)

    Description :

    Adding a more slice to a top spin ball. It is a difficult procedure as if struck wrongly, the ball will fly over and out. Strike it without a spin and it wont stay on the ground. When i hit this, i normally slice the ball with a downward smash . Hit it (racquet) facing down 1o'clock - 8 o'clock . Trust me if slicing it flat the ball will fly high

    whoa can u actually do that move, i know that some of their moves are still within human capabilities but swallow return is far out impossible to do but since u gave some tips ill try doing it myself

    anyway here's another one:

    name:
    Tannhauser Serve

    Description:
    a powerful serve which because of the tremendous spin applied to the ball, the ball doesent bounce instead it just rolls forward, ok this move is super impossible to do due to certain reasons one of this involves the amount of spin needed for the ball to move in such a way, the closest way to do this serve is by actually applying a a huge amount of back spin(like certain slices and dropshots) or topsin but not a side spin cause this will make it into a slice serve, during a a deep and low angled flat serve, to lower the balls bounce although this wont provide the same effect as the one on the anime but at least it will bounce extremely low and has forward motion

    facts/extra details:
    -in medievel german folklore Tannhauser was a sinful knight who found one of the homes of Venus(the Roman goddess of beauty) and fell inlove with her, Tannhauser is also the subject of Richard Wagners's plays that Atobe seems to be fascinated with.
    -in the anime this move was considered to be a serve like a version of tsubame gaeshi while in the manga it was of Echizens cool drive or drive c

    Atobe Keigo's serve can be done in real life. One of my friends did it to one of my other friends who told me about it (he's a PoT maniac, so he knew it was Tannhauser).

    Zero no Shiki Drop Shot

    User: Tezuka Kunimitsu, Echizen Ryoma

    Description: The user lightly slices a ball about to hit the ground, putting just enough drive into it for it to float over the net and land about a foot off. (crappy, I know, but that's all it is.)

    I almost pulled this off. Only thing is that I never get it to stay on the floor. It always bounces back or straight up a little... and it's never just a foot off the net, maybe 3-7 feet.

    Acrobatic Play: A simply incorporating acrobatics into standard strokes.

    Kikumaru Beam: Jumping in the air so the your side is facing the net then putting your arm behind your back to hit the ball.

    Kikumaru Smash: Running towards a ball further back in the court than you are and backfliping in the air so that you can smash it while your upside down.

    Dunk Smash: A powerful smash, using a high jump to increase the power. A favorite demoralizer of Pete Sampras in real life, albeit with an abbreviated jump.

    Scud Serve: Really fast serve going about 215 kmph, low chance of success.

    User: Ootori whats-'is-face.. Andy Roddick.




    Any there any people who can actually pull some of these off (the [semi] imaginary ones, not the ones already in real life)? Zero no Shiki is possible, I've done it the right way once (still bounced a little, but it was REALLY little). Jack-knife also, but I can't really drive it, it always topspin lobs because I end up cutting too much.

    Higuma Otoshi... isn't that like "Bear's Death Cry" or something? Higuma- Bear, Oto- sound, Shi- death. And I think the Hakugei's thing with the wind was that it canceled out any forward motion the ball had, making the intense backspin on the ball more able to shoot it back toward the user's side.

    Fuu Rin Ka Zan no Fuu- Wind Forest Fire Mountain:: Wind Technique??

    - Think that this is an extreme offensive slice, hit off a backhand, aimed at the baseline (or possibly the opponent's feet).

    Fuu Rin Ka Zan no Ka- Wind Forest Fire Mountain:: Fire Technique


    A smash hit on a shallow, lob in which the user puts all their weight on their front foot as the ball comes up, and, at it's climax, spins backward so that their hitting arm's shoulder is pointed at the opposite side (to gain momentum), then spins back around to slam extra force into the smash. Super strong smash, requires a firm grip on the racquet handle.

    Tannhauser Serve

    Atobe's signature serve. This is similar to Syusuke Fuji's Tsubame Gaeshi, the ball does not bounce and instead spins rapidly down the court, thus rendering it almost impossible to return. Its flaw, however, lies in that it places tremendous strain on the server's arm and shoulder. While Fuji utilizes the opponent's return in hitting his shot, Atobe must exert enormous force in order for the move to come out correctly. Thus, he is slowly worn down during his serve. Despite scoring a chain of unreturnable balls, a Tannhauser is finally returned when it bounces, evidence of his shoulder's degradation during that short time period.

    In the manga the Tannhauser Serve is the serve version of Ryoma's COOL Drive, a drive volley that doesn't bounce,
