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.

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.

Not sure who you were, but grey shorts is a total boss!

Ahem. Sorry. I'm the tall guy with yellow shoes (and grey shorts If you mean my opponent, those shorts are actually blue )

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!

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 :/

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.
11-14-2011, 07:24 PM #1206
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

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!
