Sorry if my title confused you. What I meant was that I see many right-handed professional players, with the exception of Taufik, electing to hit a cleared shuttlecock with a forehand rather than a backhand even though the shuttlecock is very far to the left. I always thought professional players would have the backhand strength to clear or smash the shuttlecock with ease, rather than relying on their forehand and sacrifice their positioning. Is Taufik one of the few pros who are confident enough with their backhand to not hit a backhand shot with a forehand? Are there any strategic reasons to hitting a shuttlecock cleared to one's weak side with one's forehand?
