    Even with a 50 MPH wind gusting against you and skills and pure strength to be able to smack a forehand at 130 MPH it won't be the Hakugei, since the ball would stay at the same altitude. If anything the normal topspin stroke depicted in the anime won't be sufficient in generating the immense backspin needed to make the ball fly up vertically. It's impossible to generate the extreme slice-spin from a single human being even counting additional spin from the ball possibly hitting the frame of the racket at the right angle.

    So in short,

    Is it scientifically possible? Yes, you can set up a laboratory situation with the ability to make the ball do that.

    Is it possible for someone to do it in an actual game of tennis? Hell no.

    If you want to read a realistic sports manga, read Slam Dunk. I think most people knew that most of the moves in Prince of Tennis was fake (like no shit, you have to be retarded to think they all existed), so your entire thread was useless.

    And yes, some of those moves do exist but are just exaggerated in the manga.

    You should have read the existing threads before writing such a tortuously long, elaborate text.........*cough*cough*of crap*cough*. I think i've said it before... if you like reality then watch ESPN... I do. Quite a while ago we all agreed the super extraordinary moves in PoT are entirely surreal. Plus, I think no-one on this forum thinks that a non bouncing ball is posible... If someone does I pity them (sorry for the harshness:P).

    dude its not just a lob, its an extremely hard to do half volley added with topspin which is then hit upwards like a lob, i just wanted to say that =)

    [QUOTE=fetus]

    for frikin sake dude if you could do that then you're defying the laws of physics and no one can do that except the people in "eureka"(tv show on sci fi channel)

    lol. So, you're going overboard on all the "pseudo-reality theoretical" moves in tenipuri ... but you back up even weirder things like the Eureka show?

    It's too bad that in one of the episodes, Carl Carlson uses about 100% of his brain ... which is one of the things you ragged on here. Also, i think that weird "artifact" in section 5 is more unlikely than an awesome high jump in tennis.

    Yes it's just a lob. Since Oishi hits the ball after it bounces calling it a half volley is technically incorrect. Also, both normal lob and forehand strokes naturally generate topsin. The amount of topspin is dependant on the arm velocity as it brushes upward on the ball and the grip of the user. The hardest part about that shot is aiming for and successfully hitting the opposite baseline. Even the best tennis professionals can't hit the back baseline consistantly during practice, much less during an actual game.

    Happened to me in match play once. By fluke of course. Both coaches ruled it my point since my opponent did not hit it before the second bounce despite it going over to my side of the net.

    momoshiro's jacknife is a move that's used commonly by people that are somewhat short getting to a high ball or someone that's looking to get more power by leaning into the shot.

    recent uses of this shot include Arnaud Clement's matches during the Toronto tournament and Marat Safin almost anytime he plays

    I completely forgot the jacknife. Urg, I watched Tommy Robredo and Lleyton Hewitt use it so many times too. Although it's more of a side lean than a forward lean, the form itself is to increase the velocity at the point where the racket brushes the ball by increasing the horizontal rotation of your body during the shot. Variations of it are very commonly used as crosscourt backhand shots in any level of tennis. Heck most people do it without even thinking about it.
