    In my 5-6 years playing badminton, the only one technique I still can't (or haven't) do is the crosscourt net. My friends are doing it wonderfully, while I am just hitting the shuttle to the net or straight out all the time.

    Maybe it's just because I prefer the straight net (less errors), especially the "indefensible" net drop, as I call it (whereby shuttle hits top part of the net and drop straight down on opponent's part of court, making a save or clear nearly "impossible").

How many points are lost due to serving short or too high? With a strong rear-court player, this shot is worth its weight in golden shuttlecocks. However, this means the shot only pays dividends at the high-intermediate level. At the professional level, one has to deal with the intense mental pressure from serving to other players with a physical, dynamic return of serve repertoire.2. It is not respected and its importance is underestimated.There is a phrase, "people respect what you inspect". In this case, people only realize their service flaws when they face a competent, quick opponent who can aggressively return flicks with a foot on the service line. In many games, I have had my short serve broken down by "return of serve specialists".3. It is played with poor technique.Did you know that the short serve is supposed to be struck not from the middle of the racket, but from near the top? That it only uses the fingers and wrist? Until recently, I didn't either. Here's a great video from Cai Yun (unfortunately, in Chinese) that teaches the technique: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIJ2LC9wCkcSo don't underestimate the shot and make sure your technique is correct and clean today!---Marketing Specialist at Zco Corporation | Custom Mobile App Developer
    On the contrary, this is the easiest serve for me. It's just a matter of training - if you perfected it well, this serve is a very dangerous weapon in your arsenal because of its unpredictability.

    I've already drill my brain enough to make a concrete conclusion that THE MOST difficult shot of all mother of difficulty in the world of badminton is............ to do a hit regardless of whatever type of hit it is but....at the millisecond fraction of moment when you wanted to do it....... suddenly......the lights for your court went off because finish already the court rental period......ooohhh man.......

    The most difficult shot is smash return that directed to your body by your opponent because your partner not able to make proper clear.

    Reverse backhand slice, I don't even have a clue how to attempt to do it.
    Looks so cool when LCW does it, though.

    Back hand jumping smash...
    1)Too soft - kena intercept and bantai (counter-attack)
    2)Too strong - how many of you can do it at certain height from ground?
    3)Jump Too fast,slow,low, high - miss the shuttle..scarecrow only
    ...so far I don'w know which player is good at it..except I came across in a local competition the player accidentally did it during front net interception...

    Could we please stay on shots that are actual shots? Otherwise I'm adding the reverse Peter Gade to the list, along with the behind-the-back baseline-to-baseline clear by Lin Dan.
    There has never been nor will there ever be a player that successfully uses a jumping backhand smash. Two reasons - if you can jump and play the backhand, you can jump and play the much stronger forehand. Also, you can not jump in a way so that your body rotation adds power to the shot, unlike a forehand smash, unless you jump and make a full pirouette (after which you're sure to mis-time, mis-hit or just completely miss the shuttle).
    Intercepting at the net is another story, but generally, one doesn't jump (as in jump higher than a few centimetres) to intercept with the BH. Exceptions might be really tiny player like JJS but even they should stay away from that as the 2011 HK Open Final shows

    fast, powerful, steep, nearsideline accuracy jumping round the head smash

    you can hit powerful but sacrificing the steepness and accuracy. or hit it nearsideline but not powerful enough

    feels like a pro if by any chance I executed it perfectly, leaving my opponent stranded, only looking the shuttle passing them by
