    Something thats been bugging me the last few months,

    When your partner is serving where is the best place to look?
    As most players have there own technique for serving Ive got into a mix of looking at the bird or at the opponent.

    Prefer to look at the shuttle but if there blocking it..

    Would like a few opinions.

    Many thanks, Mark

    Look at the opponent's racket face to determine which direction to anticipate the bird.

    I look at my opponent, as I usually am aware of my partners upcoming serve.

    Surely the only answer is to look at the receiver?
