I will just reiterate what jackie said - looks like you have rubber band between your racket wrist and 'racket knee' - you want to play every shot with wrist and knee next to each other
I also thought your backhand lifts + nets looked peculiar. 2.20, 7.33 show examples - your wrist just shouldn't move like that for that shot. Compare to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_NAx409G2M (and I loath to cite LJB )
net shot at 2.00, 2.33 show big arm movement to the bird - need to address the shuttle earlier so that arm movement isn't part of the actual shot.

Mid-front court rally you seem to have problems getting to the shuttle. At around the 4:45 mark you seem to be just standing around hitting the bird back and forth; so when you had to lunge, u were out of position. Make sure you have the habit of doing the split step as soon as the moment the opponent contacts the shuttle.
Work on your change of direction as well. He caught you flat footed a few times with those.
That's all this newbie's eyes can see

I see what you mean, sometimes I play passively just allowing my opponent to smash at me. When I could be winning the point.
Thanks again for the help J4ckie

hi drew tze en
jackie pointed it out quite well.
my first impression (before reading jackies post): wow, very decent backcourt play, but quite lousy frontcourt play.
your smashes from the backcourt are nice, your clears are good, you have a good timing and impact on the shuttle overhead in the backcourt. with your nice smashes you create a lot of opportunities!! but then, as you have the opportunity created, you give it away at the frontcourt by either: playing a lift or taking the shuttle very low when you do a net shot.
i think you're quick enough to take the shuttle much higher and play far more netshots. if you take the shuttle earlier, your precision will be higher on the netshot and i'm sure that will win you a lot of points!!
i recommend you should practise that really separated from other things. if you have a partner to feed you some shuttles, tell your partner to feed you a clear, then you smash, immediately move forward, then the partner feeds a net shot and you try to play a precise spinning netshot. then he feeds a clear again. like that you can really concentrate on:
a) move forward quick enough after the smash
b) take the shuttle early/high
c) play a netshot instead of a clear.
i'm sure that would improve your game a lot!
would look something like that...

what is obvious at first sight is that you should improve your footwork.
1. you seem to lack power/athletic abilities! when you have to lunge, it takes you a lot of time to get back in balance/position. sometimes you even need to do an additional step after your stroke because you don't have the power to recover. i would suggest to do some off-court drills (lunges, weighted squats, deep jumps) to become stronger in your legs.
2. you don't have a good rhythm on court. your movements seem a bit random (don't know how to describe...). your footwork pattern is not really an automatic movement, deeply anchored in your brain. watch for example the footwork video by jonas rasmussen on youtube and do this exercise on court to get a better rhythm and court coverage.

Thanks for your advice, I've always felt that my footwork is the worst part of my game. I have been trying to improve it for a long time, however I can never the transfer the work from drills into the game.

Most important thing in footwork: split step. To get it right, you need to practice, practice, practice. It does not come naturally, so you need to remind yourself to use it in training, and long enough that it becomes subconscious.
I can only agree with Footwork - watch the Peter Rasmussen video, and start with that drill. At least 15 min per training of footwork!

We play in the Verbandsliga in BW.
Where do you play / which level?
11-01-2012, 10:39 AM #1563
Verbandsklasse Hannover in Niedersachsen. So far, pretty successfull individually (MD&MS)
Goal for next season is Niedersachsen-Bremen-Liga as MS3/XD and MD2.

that's 100% true!
unfortunately, footwork is really hard work. you need to really automatize the correct footwork pattern and establish a good rhythm. especially in singles, it is maybe the most important thing to have proper footwork! if you don't get to the shuttle in time, you can't hit it properly. sounds trivial, but it's true...
