If you are coming outside in, yes, it is impossible. Cheetah is talking about inside out.
To me, an inside out movement is a pull in initially, followed by a push out at contact, with the swipe first heading outward from the body. Eventually of course the racket will be pulled in in the follow thru. Kind of an S shape overall, rather than a simple arc.
