    As you said I have to improve my netplay over the next time. Think my lack of sharpness in the forecourt really is a weakness of mine. I have seen the video some times now and as you noticed Im really taking the shuttles very late when receiving drops. Have to work on that, but I feel it can be really hard sometimes to anticipate these dropshots. When the opponent plays the clear on that occasions you are really fooled.
    @amleto: I dont understand why my "bouncing" looks strange to you. Of course it looks funny sometimes when you watch the video just concentrating on this, but I feel it helps me alot to keep body tension between my shots and making my movement into the corners faster. When you watch the pro players it seems they are "dancing" round the court. I tried to copy that and so far it feels good for me. Do you think I should stop that? (Wont be easy bcs Im doing that almost automatically right now)

    If anyone has noticed other things dont hesitate to critique please. Helps alot to hear what others are thinking.
    It's not that you split-step, what looks a bit unusual is that you bounce continually between shots instead of just once like the Pros do. At least the first few bounces are unnecessary and sap energy. Another thing - your legs seem a little stiff, you don't bend your knees when you move (except for the lunge of course) and as a result, your whole movement around the court looks very stiff.
    By bending your knees, you would lower your center of gravity and could become a little faster and more explosive (using the bigger muscle groups in your legs more effectively - it looks like you get most of your power out of your calf muscles rather than the whole leg).

    The only thing I noticed that haven't been mentioned already is lack of dropshots from the backcourt. You seem to almost always clear or smash. There might be reasons for this that I don't know about of course, but spicing your game up with a dropshot every once in a while wouldn't hurt imho.

    I only noticed 1 drop shot and it left his opponent standing in disbelief, LOL.
    Opponents base when he was receiving serve was very far forward, ever tried flick serving him? I'd imagine it would leave him totally stranded.

    First MD match of the day in our league. Bad performance and thus great frustration on my part - the pace is considerably lower than anything I play in training. I tried to force it a bit and made some errors, and my partner had a gruesome first game. On top of that, my arm hurt for the first MD and MS match and made smashes painful. Don't know what caused that, though - I've been pain-free for weeks.
    I'm a bit under-challenged in that league and wish for better competition - however, I'm kind of important for the team (because I have time for most matches and reliably score points) so I probably won't be able to move up to another one before next season. Seeing the videos, I'm really not looking forward to spending the next 5 months on this level :/
    I'll upload part of the rest of the matches soon and try to get some footage of a few training matches - those are much better.

    First MS match. The pace was excruciating Halfway through the second game, I realized he could only play a crosscourt drop shot or a longline clear - and tried to move my base position a little forward. I might've been a little overconfident as well because he used to train at my club and never took a game off me
    All in all, not an enjoyable match.

    jackie, you don't seem to get fully behind the shuttle. If you put just a little more effort into speed of movement backwards, it would make all your shots easier, and give you more options.

    that guy (MS) has a very strange action!

    Indeed he has
    As I said, not very good matches. In training, I usually play with the teams 3-5 divisions higher - much better rallies and higher pace as well. I'll do my best to convince them to let me play in a higher team for the rest of the season (you can change the teams after first round). Not much hope though - my current team is in dire need of manpower as nearly all players can only participate in half the matches :/

    What in earth is with this guys technique!!!

    And yes, from early on it's clear that when he's stuck in his rear corner, he can only play back to the net, so your base should be moved a step forward ready to take the shuttle nice and early, he seems to always lift after you play a net shot, so generally if you were to play him again, after playing a net shot, move back as soon as the shuttle falls quite low under the net, allowing you to play either a smash, or attacking clear to his forehand corner, and then move in ready to kill the shuttle...

    I think people being a bit harsh on lukas i like his movemtn it seems focused and not lazy. i think he's one of the better players to post on this thread in my non expert opinion. he seems alert and not easily beaten by standard shots like so many other players, i would include myself as a player aswell. pros do bounce probably less because they can judge larger steps better.

    They don't bounce because they can time the split-step so well. Although I agree, Lukas is amongst the better players posting here. Although I'd like to play a match against him - I like my chances

    And yeah, LD, you made me look. Douche. :P

    @j4ackie

    That guy's technique is ironically probably one of the things that gave you trouble because you're not used to seeing it. In some ways it gives him an element of disguise/surprise whatever you want to consider it in this case. However he messes up on a lot of overheads simply because of the distance he takes his racket back and ends up hitting the shuttle late.

    One interesting thing I noticed is that he never played one single backhand overhead, not one. He always managed to play the overhead in the backhand corner with his footwork (which was ok). It's kind of a shame, with his weird forehand technique I was really curious to see what his backhand overhead looked like lol. He managed to get to your backhand plenty of times though. Luckily for you your backhand is very strong and is not a very big weakness for you when you play a guy like that.

    I think the match was frustrating for you mainly because of the fact you mentioned you were overconfident and that you are used to playing guys with better (and similar technique). I guess that's why we play new opponents and are forced to adapt.

    But you pulled the match out by exploiting the weakness in his smash defense which was very effective. Nice job!
