    for number 3, if he does not stare too long, I think it's fine
    sometimes people want to see good spot to serve (which might be behind you)

    for no 2, what I do is to lift my left hand until I ready
    if they serve when my left hand is up that means they serve before I'm ready

    for no 1, maybe it's just a bad habit
    maybe you can do the same, lift your hand until he is ready

    I like it. How about a badminton custom party? With disco light? Wow, some business idea here!

    I understand some ppl may check the spot where they are going to serve to. But this one I described here is like his attention was supirsingly caught by something behind me, and his tension was slightly lower.Also, i remember there was a thread here asking where u look when your opponent serve. For me, I look 50% on his posture, 40% on bird and where the racket about to contact, 10% his eyes. So, where ppl look normally doesn't bother me, but this one is really acting it, and at lease 3 times in a 21 pt game.

    Hii,
    Do you play the game for fun, for tournament or do you bet in the game?
    This is just a simple mind game, its a distraction to make you un-focus, you should be able to control your self here..
    This usually happen if the opponent affraid to you or less good then you..
    If I were you, I will try to ignore, dont mind any stupid things the person do..
    Last couple months my points was 18 and my oponent is 11 or 12, I always protest anything my opponent do, but at the end my focus was away and I lost the game, 18-25.. (we play classic rules to 25 points)
    Since then I always try ignore them and keep my focus..
    My opponent like to:
    -resting, clean the floor (due to havey sweat - he took of his shirt), talk/teach his mates before serve, serve above waist (just as it a fast drive), squish his pants due to heavy sweat, squish his grip due to heavy sweat, like to make a fun of his opponent, before serve again try to talk to his opponent or his partner and the best part and it really happen, he change his underwear due to heavy sweat.. hehehehe..
