Will the 21 point NSS have any impact on overall strategy and tactics?

    I am creating this thread to generate ideas and opinions on whether the NSS will make players and coaches have a re-think on overall strategy and tactics to exploit the new system.
    Strategy-wise, will the NSS affect your basic strategy in a winning game, a losing game, winning vital points, your focus, confidence, concentration, and determination, etc? Tactics-wise, cross-courting, angle of return, employing deception, and trying to elicit a specific reply-will these change?
    There was an older thread similar to this but it was more slanted towards attack. This thread has a more 'open' approach and is suitable for all shades of input and opinions.

    imo, this video debunk the theory that attacking tactic is more suited for NSS. Han Jian, a defensive player, had to change racket like 2-3 times due to excessive attacking. Both players initiate attacks whenever it's possible.

    Not on strategy during gameplay, but during training, focus will be made more on gameplay drills and lesser on stamina building. We will not need more stamina for shorter games. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    But you dó need to get more explosive. So instead of being able to run at 100% during the 40min game. you need to run 120% in a 20min game...

    Out-pacing or out-smashing your opponent (physical-badminton you'd say) will probably become favored, in training. Because if you train to be afster and stronger than your opponent you can focus on technique and strategy durin gthe game.

    Your last sentence rings a bell and it makes sense. "Both players initiate attacks whenever it's possible", yes only whenever it is possible, is unversally applicable, including the NSS. Remember for every attack there is a counter attack, and too hasty an attack can be a little too pre-mature.

    NSS = shorter games.
    Shorter games = less energy spent.
    Less energy spent = players can sacrafice endurance for speed.
    NSS = Faster game play.
    Faster game play does not necessarily mean more attacking although Attacking = Greater energy use (b/c of jumping and getting behind the bird).

    Hey viver, how about we hijack this thread and turn it more positive: "How are you adapting to the 21 point system?" Are you trying different strategies and tactics - and what has been successful for you. What has changed for you in terms of game play that is noticeably different from the OSS. What thoughts do you have to help players going through the conversion process to be successful in their adjustment. In this hijacked thread - don't speculate or give opinions. Give us your real on-court experience with the NSS. Just don't whine about the change.

    I ahve been playing doubles using the NSS for 3 sessions (2 hrs each). Here are my opinions:

    1) Games are boviously much faster
    2) need to make much less mistakes (i have lost a few games due to my and my partner's own unforced errors
    3) Need to serve very well
    4) less tiring which means you will not need to conserve as much energy
    5) dont make mistakes
    6) dont make mistakes...you get the point:D

    Lets face it.. In Mens Doubles, endurance and stamina hasn't been of as much focus as in singles even with OSS. So Personally I think mens double will not get significantly more agressive with NSS. I think most current MD players tried to get the sustained attack to win points under OSS, and this will continue with NSS..

    The major effect will be that service and return of service (these two shots).. Which has been extremely important in MD when OSS was used.. Will be taken to a new extreme of importance with NSS.. Adding a greater element of chance and luck in the games..(line-calls and the netcord will have a bigger impact on the outcome)

    I think doubles hurts even more than singles by NSS.. But We´ll have to live with it for now, in most tournaments :crying: ...

    And it's not all bad...
    For the fans of the lesser talented players, this can be a good thing, as a better player will more often loose to a lesser player given the skill difference isn't too huge due to the much shorter games. ;)
