How do you practice smashing? How i practice smash is i get a really good partner that know how to return smashes, he will be my opponent. he will have to set up smashes(eg. clearing to the back for a open jump smash) and also sometimes the opponent would cross court the return. also if you use this method with a head heavy racket it really works out your wrist It did for me atleast.... p.s. heres a video example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo8WP6luvPY&feature=related Watch from 9:10 This is were Chen Jin and Lin Dan Faced off in All England 2008 CJ(The smasher) smashes to LD(The returner) and LD Returns it And CJ Smashes again And repeat.
