    hypnosis requires that you focus on one object, so if you focus on the frame you will be easy prey to your opponent, considering he knows what he's doing. on the unlikely event that it does work, your opponent will know your motive from then on and he may easily deceive you.

    I look at the T and maybe my racket, where my opponent is standing, 3 or 4 spots where I can serve to, then the top of the net before I serve.

    I look at my opponents stance and position. Just like in the Police Academy, we study the conscience of people whether they are criminals or not.
    But it is different in the real game when your opponnents are veterans and professionals, they know how to set and kick butts!

    I voted for all over the place cuz I really do look everywhere when I decide where I serve to, but I'll look at other places other than where I am to serve. Sometimes I'll stare at my opponent's head when I make a flat serve to the back (thinking hopefully that the shuttlecock will fly straight into his face hahaha)

    I look at my opponent stance (in double) and thinking of where the birdie should drop. If the opponent is too near to the net, thinking I am going to drop just cross the net, then I will punish them by pushing the birdie to the back.

    Sometimes, I will serve the birdies to the corner to allow a subsequent net pay to deceive them.

    In all things, there should be 3-pts contact i.e. At the Net, The opponent stance, The place you intended to serve. Why this 3-pts? At the net, this is because, if you do not serve over the net, what play are you talking about. The opponent stance, you need to see how he hold his racket up or down, one leg forward, body lean forward standing near to the service line & centre line etc. before determine low serve or flick serve. Intended place to serve, you need to have your objective and sense of direction.

    Recently I've been trying to make myself more consistent, and I've experimented with various ways of doing so.

    I've never noticed where I look when serving, but I have noticed recently that for me to play consistently, I form a "before-image" in my head of myself performing an action. To do a short serve, I just imagine my stroke being completed. Then, when I do serve, my body makes all the right movements and the serve is good
    Or when I receive a serve, I imagine a "ghost" right in front of me, positioned to do a net shot into the corner.

    So I voted that I look everywhere.

    For me playing for more 20 years, i look at my opponent eye, especially in double.
    look at his eyes to pull his attention away from the shuttlecock.
    cause normally our opponent will look at the shuttlecock,
    So look at his eyes, when the time he look back to you, serve immediately.
    Normally i serve to back court and serve has to be very consistent.
    Normally my opponent get trick one to two time, then he will know. useless to keep using this way frequently.

    ''where do you look when you serve?''

    i would assume the question is 'where do you look just before you serve'
    if that is the case, obviously one has to look at the white tap a second just before you serve. u need to visualize your shuttle going over it smoothly (self confidence!)

    prior to that one has to look for the opponent, if he is ready - delay in your serve, where he stand, his racket height ..... the total time may take up to 4 to 5 sec and thats long enough for your opponent to tilt or even loose the mood to dash forward!

    if one is to take the bird and just serve it would be an advantage to yr opponent as by the the 3rd or 4th of yr serve he or she will have an idea and where to attack you.

    Wink preparation!

It goes where i want it to once in a while. But when i actually started thinking about it and tried to see where i was looking it screwed me up. I am curious to see what everyone else does. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    in service, there is the preparation (as i mentioned in early post) before you serve. the sames goes to driving or bowling, you have to prepare first and probably the last second in bowling you create an imagery line to your intended target.

    such preparation can be, as some of you already pointed out like starring at your opponent... or recent one even looking at the post! (subject to a reconfirmation from faris8965 post #302!)
