I just finished watching your XD game and I really like your forehand deceptions! You tricked out the opposing female quite a few times with that move, props to you there. It must be a pretty regular part of your game.
Anyways, I think as you said your drops weren't as tight as they could be, but I think the really big determining factor was that your opponents female player was more aggressive with her net play and I think that made all the difference. I noticed that your partner didn't make as threatening shots and often played very defensively. I think often when she was at the net she pushed or lifted too often as opposed to making a tight net shot to give you the opportunity for an attack. Even if she did lift, it was often very low and short which allowed the opposing male player to attack it with a hard drive sometimes.
I think 5:02 is a good example of how good the opposing female player was always looking for an opportunity to attack off a drop, though you should be careful about dropping when your opponents are in the front-back attack position.
One thing about the opposing female player is that her flick serve is quite high and gives you a little more time to make a good smash off it, which you actually did one time except she made a pretty good return to the empty part of the court.
Overall though I think you should just work with your partner on being more aggressive especially at net. I believe that was the main difference in your match up.

you looked tired , quicker footwork needed ! badminton is all about footwork -movement and technique.

I also noticed my partner's lack of aggression, but chalked it up to missing training and not having her 'game-hat' on. She got a lot better in that regard later that day - it was needed as well. I could barely jump at all in our 7th match, she put a lot of pressure on our opponents and made the game much easier for me.
But I always look a bit tired/sluggish, I'm currently working on that. Being tall makes it hard to move your limbs very fast, so I do some weight training to increase leg strength. University and Badminton limit my time, however, so I'm usually only able to do that once a week...
The 3rd MD match - I didn't film the 1st game, regrettably, where we lost sth like 17-21 or 18-21. As you can probably tell, the bigger of our opponents is the best player on court, even though he hasn't had a lot of time to train lately. He anticipates very well, making it hard to get the shuttle past him when he's at the net. Unbelievably, this pair only became 2nd, losing to our opponents #4 (uploading that tomorrow).
The third game should be up in less than an hour.

Dunedin, New Zealand
It's great to see other players posting their vids up. I've recorded a few singles games of me playing, here they are. Constructive comments are welcomed
My university tournament, I came 2nd and lost to this guy. I'm one with the blue Apacs shoes. Men Singles.
I have a bad form of net play and not tactically good sometimes when reacted. My footwork is not up to par in this game because I was pretty tired after a whole day of tournament playing.
There are more vids in my channels so subscribe if you can :P

Would it be useful to switch my straight and cross court smash into body shot smash?

not really playing but just some simple drop-drop-clear drills. the gym was awesomely empty as we were the last ones to leave!
i can already see lots of stuff to improve on. incredible how something as simple as a drop-drop-clear can reveal so much issues!

you mean "drop, net, lift", right?
so many short lifts

I have a problem with my the shuttles my coach uses - they are all pretty bad 'knockers', so it's impossible to know when you start to skimp on length, because everything goes short anyway :-/

OK, so here's a clip of the last half of the second set of a match I played recently. I'm the one with the white shirt. I'm playing a guy that's 1 division rank above me but there are a few things that have been pointed out to me. 1. I was hitting to the back too much, 2. My drops were scarce and inconsistent and 3. Indecisive about some of my shots.
I'm playing in my division this weekend, so any tips on improving are welcome.

1st You need to improve you footwork
2nd You have to be in balance at the moment your opponent is hitting the shuttle and do a split-drop (http://www.badmintonbible.com/articles/footwork/movement-elements/the-split-drop.php) .
Just watch a video of a pro match in slow motion. And watch at the feet. They will be always in the air at the moment the opponent hit the shuttle.
3rd Lower your center of gravity -> broaden your legs. So you can change direction faster.

I never really noticed that split step very much. I'll have to work on that. As for the center of gravity - I'll have to be concious of that.
On another note, I played in my division yesterday and though I still lost, it was a better match in terms of footwork and balance - I'll upload it for comments soon.
