    Default right side of the court

    i am right handed. i play doubles and whenever im at the right side of the court i feel all uneasy like ima miss the shot and stuff. but whenever i play singles and im at the right side, i feel fine. is it cuz i feel uneasy because the shuttle might hit to my backhand and my partner is right next to me on my left? well does any1 else has this problem and is there a way to fix this uneasyness of being at the right side

    Do you mean when you're playing side-side? It's probably just a mental thing of being on the right side if you're fine with being on the left side (never mentioned any problem, so I'm assuming you're fine). It's pretty much the same thing as being on the right side, they'll hit to your forehand and your partner is next to you.

    it only means that you haven't gotten used to it i guess... just play more doubles?

    Question was never about whether he likes singles or not. It was about overcoming the uneasy feeling when playing on a particular side in doubles. But it is a good idea to train in doubles to get over this uneasiness.

    side by side, means defending......
    uneasy? scare of racket clash? no one will take that shot?
    have a talk with partner. if a smash/drop, one on the right to take with backhand. if drive/clear, one on the left to take with forehand.
    clear things out to sort-out the uneasiness/confusion.

    Like Drifit says, you and your partner may need to communicate more. Try to decide in advance how to handle the difficult situations, and if you're unsure about it during a rally then call it "mine" or "yours".
    This is especially important if you and your partner don't often play together, or if either of you lacks spatial awareness. Of course, there's no substitute for having a regular doubles partnership.
    You may even find it gives you a bit more confidence if you use a more "expendable" racket

    I think he should use a steel racket to ease that fear.
