but it's not a real skill, since it mostly depends on whether or not the opponent grant me the chance...

yeah but wouldnt it be easier and quicker to return a drive or smash with a normal backhand if you on the defence?

haven't been experiencing this as much in badminton, altho it has happened, ( like sometimes it seems that the bird has stopped moving as I lunge for it), probably am at too slow a speed level or too old to get into the "ZONE" often.
I do agree with the Madman.. do walling ... a lot of it, and try to hit the shuttle hard each time so it comes back fast...

There is really no magic in finding it harder to return smashes from better players. The reason has to be time, not speed per se. A mere block return that reaches you a few milli seconds faster than a thunderous smash will be more difficult to return. This is one factor. Another factor is the very moment when you are aware of the shot beibg hit by your opponent, the sooner you read his smash the more milli seconds you can react earlier. As an example, two identical smashes-same length, speed, and power-one with an arm action you can see a mile away, the other with great deception, you will find returning their smashes will be from easy to impossible. Deception 'warps' time-a little of Einstein here.
