    Update:

    Game: 90% MS, 10% MD although MD is likely to increase soon... :S I really don't enjoy MD much at all, can't really exhibit the same skills and strategies like I can for singles.... Well for me anyway.

    Style: 60% attack 40% rally and trying to control the opponent to set up for the smash kill.
    All round very good offense, big sharp smash, very deceptive dropshots, powerful drives, below average backhand... only good for defense and crosscourt lifts or drops, average defensive capabilities, average netplay, fast inefficient footwork (sigh).

    Racket
    : AT900P NBG95 28lbs for singles
    Don't get much feeling with other rackets

    Update:

    Game: Mostly doubles, MS sometimes.

    Style: Doubles: Offensive, lots of netplay and netkills mainly. The higher string tension on my racquet helped alot for the netplay IMO. Need to improve drive accuracy though.
    Singles: All-round, I've started to slice-drop alot to set up for my favourite netplay. My footwork has improved, so my netplay has also improved. However, all the lunges and dives are giving me a very sore back. Need to improve my footwork, around-the-head shots and backhand drop/clears. I'm able to perform backhand drops, but I still need to improve the precision. Backhand clears are travelling further, but only up to 3/4 of the court.

    Racket
    : At700 and Mp40 for doubles, 26lbs bg65p (at700) and 24lbs mpxl(mp40).
    at700 and cab8sp for singles, 26lbs bg65p and 22lbs bg65 on cab8.
