    Can slicing be a choice for the most difficult shot to play? I can't be bothered going thru the whole thread to find that someone else finds slicing their challenging shot to make.
    80% of the time when I try to slice, I often hit the frame and it makes me look stupid.

    Crosscourt netting has to be the hardest one for me. Getting it over is easy but I make it so obvious.
    So, faking a crosscourt netting.

    You're not on your own here. Slicing for me is low percentage but that's more than due to the fact that i don't practice it often

    For me, i find an effective backhand clear difficult when the shuttle is behind me.

    About everything at the net for me I'm afraid. I stopped counting how much smashes @ the net that landed out. Netplay is too high and I don't even think about crossing :P.

    For me it is the smash. Placement is good, but I still lack some power. I only use a somewhat powerful smash when aiming for the body of my opponent.

    ...
    cross court net is hardest
    next is smash
    then either straight net or drops

    i guess i base it on the "mastery" of accuracy/control

    A good fast and tight crosscourt net is hard to master.

    I have trouble mastering any fast shots from the net. Some people can play fast drives and even do fast around the head shots at the net. My reaction and swing isn't fast enough so I can only play blocks.

    For me it's serving to the other man in mixed doubles, there's just so many things that can go wrong if you don't have the tightest serve.

    Personally Id say it is a lot easier to master the cross court net then it is to completely master the smash.

    In a cross court net, you only ever need to be able to aim in one spot because you're obviously hitting the shuttle cross-court, but in a good (or "master" level) smash you have to think about positioning and placement of the different places where you can hit it.
    However when you have to apply the tactics of a smash into the game, and aiming it accordingly to your designated side of the court to say....... a cross court smash or down the line smash, then that's when it becomes much harder than a cross court drop because the margin of error you have where the shuttle hits the edge (or the line of the court) is much higher then the chance of the drop shot going into a net. - because we are literally talking about mastering the shot itself.

    On top of that, you have to hit the shuttle MUCH MUCH harder, say - at least 3 to 4 times harder which gives you even MORE room for error because to balance your power with accuracy will take much more effort and training than differentiating the height of the shuttle for any sort of cross court drop.

    I think the main reason why more people would say cross court drop is the hardest, is because it is the least common shot that people play and more so, it is the least common shot that people train/think about.

    You see heaps of games in pro tourneys where the best players in the world win by unbelievably well placed smashes at super speeds, but very few games are won by cross court nets. Even if you had a mastered cross-court drop, you would never be able to win with it unless it somehow rolled over the net EVERY SINGLE SHOT.

    I think my backhand is killing me in my game. I can't really do backhand cross net for nuts so I'll either do a straight net or a flick. I think I can do backhand lifts pretty well and my backhand drive is not bad, considering that I can do it consistently at net level, just that I duno how to use my thumb to push my racket when I'm driving so I'm lacking strength in only that area. As for my backhand shots at the back like drop, lob and smash, I'm still trying to master it but most of the time I use the overhead. I think the rest of the shots are alright for me

    Anyway, is it true that when a girl has strength, almost half of the "battle" is won?

    this is not difficult. FYI, I find the backhand is easier that the forehand.

    My difficulty is backhand smash. I have a good backhand that gives me the power to clear from my back court to oppoent's back court, drops and push are also easy.. but when it comes to backhand smash, I can get the angle right, but I can't seem to get the shuttle to fly as fast as my forehand's smash (or at least 80% of that speed). Can anyone give me some tips for that?
