    sometimes when were losing point when hitting stupid shots i start playing safe shots, but sometimes if everything is landing in but they are getting point from smashes, i start going crazy offensive and not let them smash.

    Singles or doubles if im loosing I will try and clear my mind, try and get a smile back on my face and not be fustrated with myself. It is a mental game also and if you cant function there properly then you have screwed yourself over.

    Win the game!

    15-14 wins are sooooo satisfying!

    I agree with __Lam, you have to start playing safe. Start focusing again. I remember a few games ago I was playing singles and I lost the first game because I wasn't focusing on the game but what's happening off the court. When we started the second game, I assure myself nothing was more important than winning the game then work my concern to the stuff off the court. Doing save shots a few times is kinda rewarding. It gives you a few seconds to rethink and of course focus

    I personally cannot play when I'm not focus or if I'm hungry

    If you watch tennis at all you will see the perfect example of focusing before each point by watching either Miss Sharapova or Mr. Nadal....both players use a set of prepoint moves to reconcentrate. Sharapova puts strands of hair back behind the ears and then bounces the ball 3 times....Nadal pulls his socks up....you should have something that you use to trigger concentration....maybe straightening the strings on your racket (which is what I always did and have carried it over to badminton)....everytime you do this it should be done along with the thought of concentration on the next point...

    I do things also to trigger my concentration, or actually, to distract my opponent, like sometimes when i'm down 4-5 points I pop my collar up, or start jumping to get the juices flowing and also put out another badminton receiving stance

    Back to the topic, i would slow the game down when i am losing.

    This enables me to buy more time to think of a new strategy.
