Phantom Ball

Shot Type
Forehand Stroke
  • Phantom Ball Stance
  • Phantom Ball "Vanishing"
  • Phantom Ball "Reappearing"

The Phantom Ball is a killer-technique for left-handed tennis-players. It if first introduced in the episode Who Will Play? Where it is used against Kevin Smith.

According to Atobe, Akaya hits a high-speed right-spin to the opposite side of the opponents court. Left-handers will naturally set up a backhand but the ball will rotate and it will rebound far to the left. Because the opponents vision is "narrowed" it will look like it disappeared. Kirihara can also fake the Phantom Ball, which makes it almost impossible to return.


  • This ball is harmless against right-handed players.
