Background: Me and my partner are good club level players. both have well rounded games: good defense, services, we both keep attack with ourselves through creating the game that way. Although i must say our SMASHes are not lethal. we are ranked no:1 right now as we have won the last championship (Club level). we were recently beaten by another pair which on paper is stronger as they have competed at national level and have been a pair for many years. we played again with them and got beaten again. Question: we are keeping the attack on our side, but they seem to be comfortable in defence... they keep throwing the shuttle to the back if the court... we have smashed in 100's... but the points are not coming. sooner or later they turn the smash the other way.. we send a weak return and they get the point. what to do? some people are saying we should give them the attack? that seems like the wrong strategy to me... improving our smashes.. will take time and its not lethal but its not bad either right now! we hit a lot of drops and semis in the middle as well... we are not hitting cross court either... need your help... what to do?
