You definitely need a better person to play against, hopefully someone who is just a bit better than you who can teach you things that you don't otherwise know2. Your flick backhand serve looks like a fault at times, can't tell for sure as the quality of the video is low but you lift both your arms up when you hit that and it looks above the waist and a bit off as well3. Your base is non-apparent at times, unsure if it is to laziness which my advice is if you want to get better, Never be lazy4. When you clear to the back right hand corner, move your base slightly to the right to anticipate the next shot being down the same line, if it's a cross it will take more time to travel as it's a further distance, so you'll have more time to get to that shot anyway5. You hit a smash and expect to win, you don't follow it in really, or if he gets it back as a clear you seem to leave it a lot thinking this will 100% be going out, see that it's landed in and think oh what a great shot but that was just your misjudgement6. When he hits his shot like a drop etc your weight seems to be leaning backwards always excepting your opponent to clear i.e. your weight is planted onto the ground and seems like your stuck so you're never going to be able to get that net or drop shot7. When you hit a low backhand serve, this classes as a net shot so you should stay in incase he hits a net shot, your opponent even though he was a lot worse than you got so many points because you never stayed in8. Make sure to get your feet to the position before you hit every shot unless you're really struggling, your footwork needs a lot of improvement9. There is no need for you to hit so many backhands, if you were a little bit faster then you could take so many of them as an overhead which works out a lot better for you as you can see exactly where you've hit the shot when you hit it and anticipate the next shot faster than hitting a backhand10. Make sure when you serve both your feet are on the ground, decide on a serve i.e. forehand or backhand and just stick with it, go and rent out a hall, practice your serves for an hour, see which one is most comfortable for you and stick with it11. I see from other posts that you've won a tournament getting gold, which standard of tournament was it? As there would be players in the U13 category that would easily be able to beat you who are maybe half your height?Definitely getting a good coach will help you a lot, and shadowing footworkThere are other areas I would point out but cannot think of them off the top of my head
    Thank you for your output though please put them in paragraphs next time so I can read it easier... I will be posting a new video tomorrow hopefully if one my friends can record for me depends whether I play singles or not.

    you are way too sideways-on when defending. Very often take a very biased defensive position ie you're basically guessing what side the shuttle will come.

    Unnecessary pirouettes on b/h shots.

    Forearm (non overhead) shots are very 'arm-y'. Looks to be too much flexion and not enough ulnar deviation. Can see this on return of serve - the action should be significantly shorter.

    Smash/stick looks good, although you tend to land off balance and need an extra recovery step. Would also be good to shorten the 'recoil' on some other power shots (e.g. 4:03 g2).

    When you flick serve, your first step is forwards! And it take you three further steps plus a jump to get back to base. You look quite tall so I'm sure you could half the effort ()2:25 g1.

    Drop shots probably aren't effective because your arm motion is too slow throughout the whole swing.

    I'd say you stand too far back when your partner is receiving.

    Funny you mention the underarm shots - those are what catch out a lot of opponents - with the camera angle you can't see where I'm hitting in relation to the opponent but I quite often have them going the wrong way in MD and XD from low shots...

    The return of serve - I agree, just more consistent currently with the action being used - if I shorten the action (I think I know what you mean) it's much less consistent, giving away cheap points.

    Here's the singles matches:

    Here are some videos from my recent tournament. We only managed to reach 3rd place, which was rather disappointing.Due to the large amount of players the games only went to 15 points instead of 21. Up until the semi-final we won every game in two sets. In the semi-final we lost in three sets.I couldn't record all games up until the end because my cameras battery died or it's memory was full. In the semi-final I only recorded the first and parts of the third set.My doubles partner for this tournament prefers playing singles and we never really played together before, but nonetheless it worked out ok.I'm thankful for any advice and tipps you can give me. My error rate was quite high because I played very aggressive, probably to aggressive at some times.If you don't want to watch all videos, I would recommend watching the third group game and the semi-finale. The other games were rather easy. All videos are about 8mins long each. Enjoy 1. group game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io5t531Mias2. group game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_VqaHpE_IY3. group game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdZOyuJb8m4quarter-final:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZIqvd7kC1Esemi-final:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwgzkDAAqP8

    Wow great games ! Wish I could play like you aha , I wish I could move like you but I'm lazy a lot of times so when I actually try I can move when I'm tired I don't even bother ):, & also when I saw your name I thought it said mis-hit pro ahahaha, anyways I have a video atm goingn to upload it soon, it's better then the other videos I think but still a bit lazy foot work is okay , trying to remember to split step consistently , and need to overhead more back hands and choose better shots aha. A lot to work on.

    You have good bounce and timing on your footwork. For singles, you can definitely do a lot better.

    However, your overhead shots are a little weak in the technique.

    When you prepare for an overhead, your arm drops and swings out wide. It slows your preparation. Quite a lot of people do this even up to a very high level of play. (it's common in tennis serves).

    Also, as alluded before, your disguise on overhead drops is pretty poor and your smashes are stiff. This boils down to finger technique and relaxation. To go up the next step, you will have to learn relaxation and not to hold the racquet too tightly in the early phase of the stroke. Once you relax, you can start getting better dropshots. For the dropshots, you do a "push the shuttle" technique (hence amleto saying it's slow). Well, it's one way of doing a dropshot but you need other techniques at hand for variation. I predict you do not have a proper reverse slice drop shot - or if you do, it's not effective.

    For singles, it means you cannot pull the opponent around to the forecourt so easily as the game progresses and the game gets correspondingly harder and harder.

    Amleto commented on the doubles. Not bad. Defense stance, right leg too far forward. An experienced opponent can set you up with a hit to your backhand and then your forehand. You do have good bounce technique and control of centre of balance so that gets you out of trouble a lot

    Overhead preparation for smashes and drops again is slow.

    Don't get me wrong - I think you have decent power in your smash. Once experienced opponents figure out your smash technique, they will be able to negate it easily.

    BTW, your partner has a few holes in his return of serve that are quite easily correctable. Worth a couple of points for a win instead of a loss

    Can anyone give me tips on how to bring your legs up on the jump smash I do? Also my first time rallying with feathers and smashing with a feather shuttle and I gotta say it feels so good but got to get used to it.

    For me, I switch-leg (in an actual game or during footwork drills) into a forward jump. I usually take off from my dominant foot from the back, bringing it to the front as I land to recover. Timing is everything on the jump smash, so don't be frustrated if you jump into the air and just completely miss the bird.What you did in the video was just jump in the air, which helps with angle of the smash, but it doesn't add any power. I can't see too much detail since a person walked into the camera at the time you jumped, lol.

    The switch leg is the scissor kick thing right? , yeah I understand the timing part, it just feels so much better then doing the regular scissor. Should I lean my more forward so I can get to the bird quicker as well?. Yeah tbh I swear everytime I smash or something people get in the way... Thank you !

    It's ideal to have really fast footwork so you can get behind the bird early to take time and build up the power with a forward jump. That's just not always possible at our level, but its something to work up to. And remember to turn your body, so that your body is perpendicular, to some degree, to the net before you jump.

    Exert, your smash form needs a lot of work. I don't even know where to start. Check these out for some excellent tips. Not mine of course...
