    i love the chess-mentality that comes to singles, as moving around a court with pace variations and footwork really shine, as supposed to all-out power

    Yes, there's a mentality change whenever I play singles and doubles. In doubles, I switch to a more aggressive mentality, which naturally leads to a style change. It doesn't mean smashing more, but creating openings and attacking weaknesses. This sets up both my partner and I for big kills if a bad return is made.

    During singles, I am much more defensive. I will simply clear and drop all shuttles to get pressure out of my way unless opponent make a very bad return. That is when I kill.
