    Default lin dan illegal serve?

    i think lin dan's serve is illegal?
    see here from today's match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFuPCD-u90o&t=11m47s

    it is not one straightforward motion after it starts. he starts the forward motion, then stops, goes backward again, then starts again and hits the shuttle.

    i think this is against the rules, which say that it must be one straightforward motion and cannot be stopped, once started.

    what do you say?

    Similar discussion here on Joachim Fischer-Nielsen's serve. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-serve-illegal

    It is a legal serve.

    Yeah, his first forward motion can be considered a preparation aim, not part of the stroke. Fischer also does this action.

    In previous years LD was worse, serving with a triple action.

    so the reason, why it's legal is that it "can be considered a preparation aim"? do the rules actually cover something like this?

    I had started a thread on Fischer's double action serve a while back. Most of the points of debate were covered there.

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-serve-illegal

    The consensus is that as long as it is consistently and always the same way and double action, then it's not a fault.

    But my opinion is that it still sets a bad example for others (like beginners or amateurs) to follow and copy in their social games. Would lead to many arguments. I know I would complain if my opponent did that to me in my social semi competitive games.
