    I look at my opponent, then look at where Im NOT going to serve, and then serve where he wouldnt have enough time to reach it, or if he did, hopefully it'll be a pretty high return so I can smash it Im practicing that serve deception shot, but I keep messing up the angle and the birdie goes waay to sharply to the right or not enough to make a difference !

    i always stare blankly towards the middle of that persons side(or half of their side that they are standing in). i then pick a spot, and sometimes with a fake thrown in there.

    In order: I look down at the birdie, stare at my opponent and then where I'm planning to hit.

    It usually works out pretty well too, I hit it low so they have to hit it high in the air, making it easy for my partner behind me (we play front/back) to smash.

    If there's one thing that I'm proud of, it's my serve.

    Starting to actually stare at the tape for a couple seconds then serve, and it actually is working for me 95% of the time.

    I kinda look at the top of the net and/or my opponent. Works for me as my doubles serves are very tight normally

    I voted all over the place.

    First I look my feet and position them properly. Then I look at my racket and position the bird near the top. Finally, I look at the middle of the short service line (The 'T') regardless of where I actually plan to serve.

    If I served to a beautiful lady across from me with 2 water-melon: I would be looking straight at those racks and trying to serve the shuttle right in the CENTER if possible.(LOL)......my 2 cents.

    First, i look at my feet and position myself so that i'm not standing over the line. Then i hold up my racket and the birdie, and serve, always keeping my eye on the birdie. I never look at my oponents :P It makes me laugh for some reason. I've tried doing it before but it amuses me to see them with so much concentration burning in their eyes that it usually makes me lose my concentration.

    generally i keep my eye on the T for two reasons

    1) keeps my neck and body in a consistent position for each serve, regardless of where i am serving to. thus, i use it as a point of reference.
    2) i find that if i look at the person, i will generally serve too high over the net..when i stare at the T, it's perfect every time.
