    So, a bit faster than I thought
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SCBH_IBuEo

    I can be honest about this, it's close to the best I can do. My opponent is a good player and I started a bit nervous, but things went pretty well for me, I could play the game I wanted to play. (As you might see, my strongsuit is not in defence, but in the offence).
    So I made a quick compilation of some of the best rallies.

    Is good to hear that you are getting someone better to play with :) .. that make me feel better inside as well , I dont like to see talented players being wasted and not getting the right coaching ........maybe in a few years time ,, you will be playing for the county and who knows ......you might need to swap that China shirt for a real England shirt ....:D...

    BTW, I hope you would not forget us if you become a county player ....

    Jerby, your match is filmed in a very nice angle and both you and your opponenet are players i would like to learn off.
    your height proves to be a big advantage for you as you utilize it well for your attack :)

    It's a regular league match.

    In Holland we play 8 matches (MD, WD, 2x MS, 2x WS, 2 XD) in a sort of round-robin style. This was the second mens singles in the 'first division' if that means anything to anyone.
    In this video, my other teammate is playing the other MS on the right. On the left is a different team playing a couple of levels lower.

    When you say 'nothing special'.. are you referring to the county players?

    you would think so wouldn't you ? Last time I tried to upload a video it said that it was too long, and I didn't have a good angle with the camera anyway
    I will record on either Wednesday or Thursday then straight to YouTube (hopefully)

    no, I was being sarcastic , they are extremely skillful .....quick as lighting playing matches , but when you practice with them and hitting a few shuttle , you wont notice how good they are , once they start playing matches then they would raise their level ..and you notice the difference . when the going get tough , they show their true color then you will just stand and admire their ability....

    Hey Simeon, thanks:D.
    I do play A-class here in Holland (But the definition of 'A' probably varies per country I think. A class in Holland is mostly players 1-100 on the Dutch Ranking list, the level is still considerably lower than the average qualifiers-draw on an international tournament like the swedish or dutch open), but how far I get largely depends on my draw:eek:. If I were to play B however, things just wouldn't be interesting until the final or so.

    I'm being sponsored by Karakal these days, I use the Mtec80-tattoo.

    I am, but I'd like to stay anonimous :p

    No, only joking, I'm 28th.
    They changed the ranking-program (different points and a "best 15 results" thing) and itworks in my favor :p
