Thread: Single tactics

Yesterday I've entered a tournament..
My first opponent in the schedule is someone in my u's club..
I thought I could beat him but it happened negatively..
I was so tensed about the match, so it made me played safe only..
I haven't smashed at all and all that I've been doing is just drop only..
My trainer told me not to play so safe after the first match was over, but I couldn't..
I don't know why but all my shots always went to the net..
I've become so tensed as I was thinking that I couldn't afford to lose to a person who I could beat him easily..
Please give me an advice as I'm going to enter another tournament this coming saturday..
What is the proper tactic to use when in a match?

I was also tensed first and second time and i too played safe by not dropping and smashing enough, all i did was baseline and a few drops and smashes. Just try to relax, i remember a member once suggested about listening to music that pumps you up.
Good Luck in your next tournament.

if you are nervous or under pressure you should start with shots that you are confident with..ie. for me clear, drop, smash, lift...then once you are into the game and thoes shots are going over the net and you feel good about them try more advanced shots...slice, net spins. if they start to go into the net go back to playing safer.

Thanks for your replies..
I think I've become so tensed was because the total time that I've entered tournaments were only 2 times, including this coming saturday it'll become 3..
1st tournament also was like this..
The guy who beat me up; has nothing special..
When I looked the way he played, I thought that I could win the match..
But as soon as I entered the court, I don't know what's happened but I keep doing stupid mistakes over and over again and I was beaten up straight set with too far point left behind..
My opponents kept smiling when we played ( of course he's smiling for my stupidness )..
2nd tournament was also like this, I hope this coming tournament won't be the same..
For the 2nd tournament, even the guy that I used to play single with him went to the final; but he only placed 2nd..
It doesn't the matter he placed 2nd but the matter is he went to the final..
He lose when I play with him, but he can go to the final..
That's why I become so tensed and keep thinking how stupid I am..
Every match I played in tournament, I'll make stupid mistakes..
I've been trying to avoid doing stupid mistakes but it keeps happened..
Even when I played double ( I also played double for the 2nd tourney ), I kept doing mistakes when I'm serving..
If the shuttle not stuck at the net, then it'll be high; high enough to tap the shuttle..
In my mind I keep hoping that my partner will have the serve as I'm afraid that I'll keep doing stupid mistakes.. Stupid! stupid! stupid!
May this coming tourney, the history won't be repeated..
Good luck to myself ! Urghh !!!

just remember badminton should be fun so dont put so much pressure on yourself if you do that then the game looses its "funness"
Good Luck and have fun

Badminton is fun, play relax

Sometimes I find our opponent are able to beat us not because they are more skillful then us, but they are more relax and stable during the game. They just stay calm.

I know badminton is fun..
Everytime I play badminton, I'll keep smiling..
It's just because of stupid mistakes that makes me so tense..
Anyway I'll try to make myself more calm for this coming saturday's tourney..

consistency > risky shots.

Finally, my stress has decrease and I'd my game more stable..
But I'm still lost as my opponents are state players..
Both of them place 1st and 2nd for the tourney..
Pity me as I'd with the same group with them..
They made me so tired.. But I'd a great time enjoying the game..
Wish to improve my skills and enter this coming tourney..

Yes indeed. Congrats on your progress.
Make them run around the court.
I find Lam's advice useful when I'm having a hard time with my usual attacking strokes -- take it easy, try to get time to find the groove, then strike.

As you play more and more tournament, you will be a better player. Get some role models and see how they play. emulate them if you can.
