    Which means you haven't practice enough. If you want to do it with high percentage success (not even a professional can get 100%); practice, practice and more practice.

    I forgot where I got this but it's definitely from a professional: "You must belief and have confidence that you can do it during practice".

    Doing a straight net shot is hard for me because for some reason I can only do cross court net shots.

    A slice crosscourt chop from forehand would be the hardest shot (a very fast crosscourt drop) , even a back hand smash or a backhand cross court drop would so much easier for players to master it). I believe its the hardest of the forhand stroke.
    In my many years of playing, I have seldom come across players that can slice this shot correctly. It's very effective shot if its execute correctly.

    Anybody can share some good advices to execute this shot?

    This isn't a difficult shot to master on the forhand but it's hard to use on the backhand. My advice for doing this shot is not to use your wrist, contact the shuttle with your racket at a 100 degree angle, change swing speed for different areas of the court, use the same form as if you were smashing.

    There are two forehand cross-court slices: normal slice from the forehand corner, and reverse slice from the backhand corner (when you're playing a round-the-head forehand).

    I assume you're talking about the normal slice from the forehand corner. Is that correct?

    To start with, you just need to experiment with the slice. Hit the shuttle with an angled racket face. Play around with more or less power, and with the angle of the racket. Don't worry about the results -- this is an awareness exercise.

    Begin with a small amount of slice. As you get better, you can add more slice (but you'll have to use a faster arm swing to compensate for the loss of shuttle speed).

    Finally, you can progress to brushing around the shuttle at the moment of impact, by supinating your arm during the hit; this is a delicate action, so try to maintain control of the racket head in your fingertips. This creates more spin, giving a better trajectory.

    To keep the drop shot fast, try to hit the shuttle from slightly in front of you -- not directly overhead. You want to be hitting downwards.

    For me it's the backhand clear, although it has improved dramatically recently it still has a habit of going to far up in the air rather than to the back court. I should stop hitting it early but I always think I have no time and up in the air it goes, to opponents mid court and then bang, they have a point.

    Yup, i've pointed that out a few pages back.

    Nobody's 'mastered' their footwork yet, have they ?

    I met one guy at a club in Japan, he couldn't clear from baseline to baseline.. his smashes were weak too, but his footwork was lightning fast. Since he could get to the shuttle on time, he could keep on playing slices/drops till the opponents opened up a gap for a netkill. But at professional levels, it is required for everyone to have pretty decent amount of power at least to be able to smash really hard.

    gah, the hardest shot for me to master is the high serve. I can get them really high an in the backlines, with more consistency than before ( 1/7 goes out still. )

    These may not be the most difficult shots to master but they are worth improving on them. Bot are high shots, in fact they are the very high shots.
    First is the very high serve in singles. If you can reach a height of 27 feet and over and have the shuttle drop vertically at the back line, you then have a gem of a stroke many will envy. The next shot is the very high clear of over 25 feet, hit from the back of one side of the court to the opposite back line. This very high clear will sap the energy of your opponent, especially in singles.
    Both these two strokes will however require a very strong wrist. Have you ever warmed up with top players by hitting clears from end to end? You will notice their clears are very, very high. If you find doing such very high clear rallies with them to be tiring, then you lnow you have to work on your wrist.
