very true, but nothing u can do untill the day he learn not to
aim for ppl's head, before that day come, remeber when u r expecting a smash right at yr face or if u'r standing too clsoe to the net and have no time to back off. u have a racket and it should be place in front of your body. it can be a very good shield, don't hesiate and put it in front of your face if you feel that yr in danger of a head shot. who knows perhpes a few lucky rebound would make him think twice before going for a lady's face again.

If your friends are smashing at you, get into your ready position. Lol. Racquets up to your face.

got smashed at again,
but this time, i'm sure this new fella did it unintentionally,
also, it didn't hurt.
when he apologised, i answered,
"don't worry, it MUST happen to me each week"

Don't turn angry.If your opponent smashes on your face frequently it means you allow him to do that.
1)Avoid mid court and weak returns
2)Avoid moving to the net always expecting net drops.A good lunge is enough
3)Don't take eyes from the shuttle cock and turn face.
4)Practice eye-arm coordination
One day you can smash on the body of your opponent and immediately after the body shot say "sorry."

nah,, my anger didn't last 10 seconds.
I apply and learn life's philosophy while playing on the court.
Know when to attack, when to defend...
when fail to do so,- ponder why...and seek counsel...
like what i did...
thanks guys.. will note all the tips given.
terima kasih ( thank you)

I never smash at the face............I do not need to. At the body is fine.
Even seen anyone who has been hit in the eye with a shuttle? ouch!
Why increase the odds of hurting someone like that. I know someone who is now blind in one eye, and can't play anymore.
MORAL: If you want to hit someone in the head.........Take up boxing instead.

If it is understood that the best place to defend against a smash is not at the net, then the fear of being smashed at should never arise.

At my standard my defence has already been learnt........years ago.
Trust me it is all fun trying to 'Tunnel' shot opponents in the head or face..........until someone gets hit in the eye........accidents happen though.
At the speed i smash at...............i dare not aim at someones face.

At my standard, I have no accuracy. On the many occasions I hit people on the head/face, I did not aim for them. I smashed and their head/face was in the way. Accidents can happen whether you aim or not. The best approach remains that one should learn quickly not to get in harm's way. If you insist in waking on the road rather than on the side walk, then sooner or later you are going to get run over by a bus.
