    Indeed. If you put too much weight on your front foot, the flick serve is a problem. Also, you will probably be slower for the low serve, because your back foot can't help push you forwards.

    Ok, sorry it is true that 60% sounds more realistic Just tested it out Anyway yeah, getting to the front would be much faster if you moved your right leg forward cause you are actually extending your reach forward which adds speed to the movement of your racket. Do remember that the right part of your body is actually in motion when you rotate to move it to the front, so it makes sense that the speed of your racket getting to the net should logically be faster.

    I wouldn't bother. Lee doesn't tend to measure these things anyway -- his "60/40" is what he feels is right, not what he's measured. It's more about the "60/40" attitude

    Actually, I believe this is a reason for using your left foot. You don't want extra body motion, because it will mess up your control. Power is not important at the net.

    When I use my right foot, I try to complete the turn of my shoulders BEFORE I hit the shuttle. Otherwise, my accuracy suffers.
