    Nope, he only hit it once. Why would you think he hit it twice? He did move his racket maybe feinting a different shot but definitely, hit it once...

    Could be the angle, but when i watch that shot, he hits it from the ground like a net shot, lifts the bird up a little, then does a push/net kill towards the back.

    It looks illegal too - me he hits it up then smashes it down !!!

    To be exact look at 31 seconds ,( when you said 30 seconds I thought you were talking about the rally before that)

    maybe you should focus on the opponent hitting the shuttle, to me he is the one lifting it to the net

    Here's the breakdown from where the clip starts:
    1) NR is recovering from a stroke, and his stroke has already passed the net
    2) Female on other side does a netshot
    3) NR does a forehand push
    4) Opponent guy does a lift
    5) NR does a smash

    Nothing illegal there.

    Hey I too thought it was just an AWESOME shot but then it's really 3 fast shots that youtube's quality doesn't show an athlete1234 really describes well what takes part, watch in HQ:

    still really awesome racket speed
