Just a light singles game with my friend after training. Mainly concentrating on moving each other around the court. Playing at about 60% intensity.
Enjoy peopleeeeeee. Again was very tired and only running at about 60% using this game as a light warm down.
Part 2 is alot more consistant play than part 1. But both are still loaded with silly lazy mistakes hahaha.

I like the blue color floor & background, very soothing to the eyes.
I agree, great playing. I need more work on my singles game.

thanks guys....still lots more training to do before im good. 1 problem i still have is my racket drops down below my waste quite regularly which in turn slows my game down as i have to force more movement.
Lots of things to work on!

Ouch...a stiff neck!
Tried the advice from a few pages back about pressing ctrl/alt/left arrow key but doesn't seem to work.

As you said a few posts up, you definitely need to keep your racket up more. I also think that when your opponent low served, you didn't attack it enough. OK, a lot of the time you played a fairly tight netshot but IMO, you were standing too far back and not going after the low serve enough. People think that by standing mid-court in singles, they cover themselves from both the high and low serve however, you will find that if you get closer to the short service line, you'll cover low serves better but still be able to get back for the high serve with ample time to play a shot equally as good as you could have standing where you do at the moment. As soon as you see the serve is a low serve, step in to it and play it early; that way, you give your opponent less time and can take the shuttle higher and so - put them in to a more difficult position. In the video, you seemed to let the low serve come to you before playing it. Returning the low serve more like you did at 1:10 would be a good start but I think even that one you could have attacked more.
As for high serve returns, these were better. The one problem I noticed was that you seem to want to attack the high serve too much. At 4:27 you seemed to get a lucky net cord and I know you found the net with an attempted smash earlier on in the video. Unless your smash is brilliant, I would only try to smash high serves that don't go deep enough. High serves with good depth can be difficult to smash so it's generally best to opt for a different shot. An attacking clear in to your opponent's backhand corner is a good shot to choose, as is a dropshot if you see your opponent anticipate a clear and move back.
When you played the net kill at around 4:03, you brought the racket too far back for my liking. Just the flick of the wrist should be enough to give a sharp and fast kill. By taking the racket back further, you make yourself require more time to play the shot (meaning you may not be able to kill shots that with no/very little take-back you would). From seeing lots of people do this, I have noticed that taking a longer backswing seems to cause people to hit the net with their racket more. I'm not sure if there is a direct link between the two though as people with longer backswings tend to have poorer net kills that people who take a very short backswing so it may be the lesser killing ability as opposed to the backswing that causes them to hit the net more. Wait, on second thoughts, was that a net kill or were you further back than that and just played a smash from a shallow position? I can't really tell from the angle of the video. Either way, make sure the racket head always remains in sight when you play net kills.
That's all I've noticed at the moment. Please don't feel I was being too critical of you because you're actually a pretty good player, there are (as with all of us) aspects of your game that could be improved though. On a final note, you seem to have a really solid backhand, is that the case? I don't think a remember seeing you miss a backhand from the rear-court in the whole of that video.

thanks for the very detailed observation . i dont mind at all as you took the time to watch it. Also, i have only played for a year at university training.
My strongest point is actually my attack, whether it be jump smash or any other form of attack/ quick movement. my backhand is actually my weak point. Not in comparison with others, just ive always though it was weak.

- How how many hours do you usually play during your once a week baddy session?
- I notice your backhand form is there, at least.
