    This was you.

    Again this was you. It was in your own opinion. Two posts contradicts one another. It obviously showed you did not practice what you preached! Its all subjective huh?:rolleyes:

    Yes, it's all very amusing. But sadly you're wasting our time and spoiling the thread with your obstinacy.

    Anyway, I'll agree to disagree with you!

    Keep practising that low serve! ;)

    Difficult or Almost Impossible?

    For me, the most difficult shot to master are the double motion 'drives' that are used successfully by LD during his match against LCW at the 2010 Asian Games.

    I know most would say they were the smashes that nailed LCW, but if you looked closely, 90% of the time, the opportunity was first created by the double motion drives. Double motion drives for the backhand is slightly easier to perform that the forehand. Forehand is difficult to master due to the fact that much agility and guile is needed to disguise the and deceive your opponents using a straight forward underarm motion. LCW has his backhand underarm double motion, but no forehand. Besides these 2, I rarely see other players possessing or utilizing such techniques. Even Zhao JH does not execute this type of shots.

    However, my all time most difficult would be the link provided below. I know, it's a very unorthodox shot.

    I can see another egoist here speaking on behalf of others. Normally this would be the case when someone couldn't prevail in his argument and was caught with his pants down.;)

    You too keep practicing those drop shots and slices. Use more wrist works and make sure be flexible on the grip. Not to forget your swing speed and racket face angles too when playing the slices.

    Also remember to walk-the-talk R20190.:)

    Yes, that is one of the shots. But LD's are more refined and has definitely more variations. Look up the 2010 Asian Games Final between LD and LCW and you will understand.

    Yes, they are more used in doubles, although these shots, are shots that should not be actively used, unless forced to.

    Oh, I was just confused cos you mentioned you rarely see others use it when PG is far more famous for using that shot...

    These kind of shots comes naturally to certain players. I have a few friends who successfully executed it based on natural instincts when were forced to do so and did not practice it prior. This is more on an individual ability to react I guess.

    The most difficult shots are obviously trick shots. :D

    I think I rarely have the chance to practice this kind shot, much less use it during a game of doubles. In singles, the likelihood would be ZERO for me.

    I don't know how to execute it. Do you?

    Mine is straight smash (forehand) from deep left baseline down to the single's or doubles side boundary line.

    I think the backhand smash is pretty hard to master... but once you get the hang of relaxing the wrist and raising the elbow up first... it's a breeze and then you get addicted to overusing it. ;)

    For me...as a double player

    the most difficult move- receiving serve in doubles as it combine speed, launching pace and alertness.

    the most difficult shot - drive (timing, stroke and strength is very difficult to master)

    as for smash and backhand...although it is crucial for smash but it is not that difficult to master the correct stroke. jumping smash is required good foot step and stamina. for backhand, try to avoid using backhand as it is more of a defensive shot especially cross court. backhand is good enough if you can clear and drive. backhand smash is advisable not to use.
