There is always room for improvement even for the best in the world, if you are dedicated to the sport then you are heading in with the right attitude.

Thanks for the compliments Cheung and yes I am very "streamlined" if you are referring to the aerodynamics of my smooth head hahaha. Would be great if you guys did get to put a video up!

thanks.. my fav shot isnt necessary the cross court drop, its just my opponent is much fitter than i am.. i couldnt clear all the time as he would return it always very deep into the court, therefore i just used whatever shot i thought would be best.. just so happened to be that one.

I would think the nature of a training match would be not to have any long rallies as generally one would hope to finish the rallies quickly. I can recall hearing the average rally length in doubles is 3 rallies? I can not remember where or from whom so don't quote me on that but it is a number below 5. It seemed that the players seemed to hit to one another, there were a few opportunities where you could have made the back-court player hit under pressure, making him run the sides but instead a drop was played to the front-court player.
It was an entertaining match though! There was a lot of attacking from both sides which is always fun!

Uh-oh. Gotta say that videotaping yourself is quite revealing. I knew that I'm not too fast on the court, but seeing myself I'm just flabbergasted how sluggish my movements look.
I've been playing badminton semi-seriously only since last summer, but I have some background in racquet sports. I've started to do some explosive strength / plyometric exercises, but it looks like I need to do a lot more of those.
Interested to hear other comments.
I'm the one closer to the camera, in gray shorts with reddish hair.

concerning your speed and explosiveness, you said it all, keep working on that!
2 remarks about technique:
1. try to take the shuttle earlier! unlike (e.g.) in tennis, you don't let the ball come to you and hit, but try to take it as high and early as possible. especially at the net, sometimes your early enough but let the shuttle fall. take it higher!!
2. use more underarm pronation/wrist. unlike tennis or squash, a lot of the power in badminton comes from the wrist and underarm pronation. you hit too much with your whole arm! using more wrist/underarm pronation allows you to play quicker shots, better angles and deception. try it!
you seem talented, keep up the good work!

I think it takes a bit more to make myself take the shuttle earlier in shots from the back court, but there's absolutely no reason to let them drop close to the net when I have all the time in the world.
About the pronation/wrist, I'll definitely experiment using less whole arm and more pronation.
Thanks for the comments!
