My partner is mainly the attacker when we gain the attack, so I play front. He is by far the best smasher in terms of power compared to the pairs we play against. Here's my problem: Today, he smashed and the feather of the shuttle SKIMMED my ear. Another time he smashed and it cut though my hair. By the rules we would of lost the post but anyway, how can I counter this? Crouch a bit? Stay a little to the other side? Move back (or forth) more?
