You slice the bird across, with the racket face more or less horizontal, with a slight curve movement.

A lot of people at my club tend to use only the horizontal slicing motion, relying on the shuttle to bounce off the racket. This will never work: there has to be some sort of movement of the racket head in the direction of the shot!
The wrist break is important as well, as without it the shot will spring off the racket and be loose.

This will make the bird spin over the net and drop into your opponent's court very tightly. Usually, if executed perfectly, there is no way you opponent can even reach the bird, or if she does, she will have a hard time returning the bird accurately. Good luck with the frying......

I got as far as the tumble part. Crossing the net?

I can tumble it but sometimes in the heat of battle it requires a cool head to do so. The way I do it is like fencing, you stab forward with the racquet face not quite horizontal so it has just enough angle to get the shuttle over the net (12 O'clock being the lowest point). So you are under the shuttle making it travel forward spinning in a clockwise motion. I have not totally mastered it but it is coming along.
If that's any help

to add to the others whos doing a great job describing how to tumble the net shots, i recommend u to do a slow mo review( if u have) of some great china players who can simply tumble ANY near-to-net shots , including those almost at the service line . Ye zhaoying is one of the masters of tumble net shots, be it forehand or backhand, high or low net shots. watching her spin the shuttle so nicely is a joy to watch others i like include zhang ning(forehand tumble), zhao jianhua(backhand tumble), camilla martin, taufik hidiyat, chen hong(fh).
my experience and observations(assuming u already know roughly the basics to tumbling)
One observation i have made from watching all these players' slow mo videos of them tumbling, is that u will notice the shuttle makes contact with the racket stringbed at the area between lower left ,lower right corner or the area at the 6 o clock position for forehand and backhand tumble net shots and all at a slight angle(not totally horizontal)Especially for ye zhaoying, she spins n tumbles most of her shots using mostly the very lower left or very lower right areas of the racket stringbed. so after watching, i went n try it out for a few sessions. My usual forehand tumble is like rather slow n lack rotation so i tried changing the contact areas to the ones i observed from the players and to my suprise, it was so much easier and the spin n rotation i got was much more Now in process of practising and making it consistent .
hope the above plus the other descriptions from other bc members can help u enjoy tumbling more. cheers !
