    Great serve, but how many tries did it take ?

    It would become an easy flip if longer.

    Don't think it's touching the net. But the margin of error for this serve is so slim that I don't think you can consistently execute it in real games.

    Great trick serve. The competition version would have a lower trajectory so the ball would kick back into the net. Probably still too risky even for a pro.

    Here is a Patrick Franziska ghost serve probably using a 40mm celluloid ball based on the date of the video. The other serve is a shorter version of this using a 40+ abs plastic ball.

    We had this discussion on a Swedish forum on Facebook, I'm positive the ball touches the net.
    If you look closely you can see that it touches the net

    Irregardless whether it touched the net or not, that is hard to duplicate on any kind of consistent basis.

    Correct, although it is a let, it is still one in millions

    If it contacted the net, then it makes much more sense!
    Because without the net this would be pretty much a winner against almost everyone!
    Magical serve!

    The ball contacted the net, hence the speed of the ball decreased by a ton; but the spin stayed the same

    The net contact can affect ball spin as everyone has experienced. Larry Hodges at his latest blog says he has done that before.

    Chance to do such a service: 0,001 %
    Chance to do such a service while a camera is running: 0,000001 %

    The touch required to do that serve consistently in a real match would be impacted by, using a new ball, the table differential, and maybe even the floor, lighting, etc.

    I think it took only one try, because Patrick Franziska did not try to make a trick serve at all. Maybe he made it by accident while training . Did I see a hint of a smile after the serve LOL ?

    Obviously, you never took logic as a college course.

    As poorly as those professionals did in the T2 Diamond Serve Challenge, this serve most of them couldn't do.
