    Depends who I'm playing with and what circumstances.

    If it's just club nights, I would usually say something like:

    "unlucky!"
    "almost!"
    "fancied that one!"
    "close!"... etc

    But I tend to encourage more than comment on an error...

    "Com'on, you're much better than that!"

    "Awesome/Great shot!"

    "You'll have to teach me that one"

    Where I play, "check" seems to be the most common response to motivate a come back, so I picked that up.

    Given that over the course of a game, most people will make at least 3 mistakes.... which means you're going to say "fffffuuuuu" anyway... so why not save having to wait for the third mistake and just say "fffffuuuuu" from the start? LOL

    Say it as soon as your partner steps on court!

    I didn't really grow up knowing it's true meaning, but since check can mean to arrest or restrain, I'm thinking it means to arrest a loosing streak.

    Usually my harsh glare mitigates the need for words. Though on occasion I'll offer some tactical advice such as, "You know, the object of the game isn't to try to hit their racquets with the shuttle.". I'll also try to diagnose any issues my partner might be having with their game. For example, "With all the shots you've been hitting into the net I can only assume you think we are playing hockey.".
