How common is this problem? I play in the UK at some reasonable clubs, a little under county standard, I'd say. And there are very few players when they are at the front of attacking formation that move away from the T, no matter how deep you are in a corner. This frequently ends up with this scenario: I straight smash (tram-lines/body), returned, block/push I then have to clear the shuttle from knee-high if the blocker has any sense and followes in. Isn't it quite basic positioning? To play the net player in, I am going to playing a straight smash/drop so why do very few people move away from the centre line - especially when shuttle is on our backhand side?
