    For what shot? Every shot has a slightly different contact point really.

    Smash = well in front
    Drop = just in front, shuttle lands near left toe (given ur right-handed) if you let it fall
    Clear = overhead, but can be executed well even behind head, depending on situation.

    If you can it is best to hit the shuttle in front of ur head, it gives u more options. It means u can smash, drop or clear. This is where gud footwork is needed. The prob is if u wait or r too slow and ave to hit the shuttle above ur head or behind ur head, those shots become a lot of difficult esp when shuttle is behind ur head.

    So if you can hit the shuttle in front of you
