Looking at the shuttle vs looking at the opponent(s)
I think i read an old thread somewhere, but can't remember the detail. And with my poor search skill, I guess i will start a new thread, hope ppl don't mind. If we can locate the related thread(s), please feel free to merge (sorry, kwun/cheung/mag )
I have a habit during rallies, as I tend to look at opponents (to predict their movements, etc) rather than looking at the shuttle before my stroke. The advantage is, if I can get a decent stroke, seems my placement is better and more tricky to the opponents. Of course, I am taking a risk of low quality shots myself.
There were more than 1 experienced player(s) pointed my problem, and asked me to look at the shuttle, especially for overhead strokes (clear, smash, slice, etc). I am a little bit confused to "where to draw the line". I know I still need a lot of training, but I wonder when I should look at the shuttle, and when I need to switch to observe my opponent's movement(s), or the other way around.

this is always an interesting topic that i think deserved to be re-examined again.
an old thread here:
esp read the post from "Arthur" on Ra's way to play singles.

As I am mainly a double player (MD and XD), I also wonder if there's anything different when compare to single games in "watching opponent".

That leaves only the two fellas on the other court to watch, which is still an eyeful!
