    So much wrong and feels like in going backwards tbh with injuries and deconstructing my overheads.

    you have decent strokes and a pretty good understanding of the game, read a lot of strokes quite well.
    but you lack agility/fitness/speed.
    you often hit the shutle behind the body in the rearcourt or too low at netplay. when you have to change direction (like when the opponent plays a crosscourt sticksmash for example) you get into trouble.

    you know the solution: footwork drills, fitness training, running, jumping, you name it...

    hard work for sure and not what people love to do, but that will boost your standard to another level as you have a solid foundation concerning strokes!

    thanks. The speed/fitness is definitely in-part due to injury, but even before that there is definitely space for improvment...

    your racket arm looks very restrained. move faster... to create room between you and the shuttle so that you could extend your arm.

    The dude in orange is one of these guys that never plays at the net, isn't he? You do pretty well moving around him but he definitely isn't helping you as a pair by playing the way he does.

    sorry, don't have anything useful for you!

    Dont quite understand what staiger's getting at but here are my 2 cents

    The two things that need rapid improvement are a) your serve and b) your choice of partner.
    The way you play is quite net-oriented, as you don't get very good angles from the back and don't have the cleanest smash either. You move rather quickly though, and seem to have good vision for where the gaps are. As every other net-oriented player, you'll have to buckle up and practice your serve. It's the best way to dominate a game, as you're in your favored position already, and a good serve can put your opponents under some serious pressure (provided you play with a better partner than this).
    Another thing that needs some polishing (though not as much) is your footwork around the front, when your opponents hit the shuttle, you should split step and explode towards the shuttle to take it as early as possible. You run towards it, which gives you a slightly more balanced position after you hit the shot, but if you want to play higher level doubles, it's much better to play the shot that split second earlier as it gives you more options (example would be 2:58, 4:16 in the 2nd vid - you get the point at 4:16 and show good awareness, but would've had the chance to kill if you had pushed off with both legs and committed to the shot).

    Also, get a different partner. This one has no technical abilities or tactical awareness to speak of - a few times he takes a shot you're in much better position to take and plays a clear or makes an error. Also his overhead play, which should be strong as you're clearly net-oriented, is rather ineffective and has major technical flaws. A suitable doubles partner for you should have a decent smash and secure overhead play, tactical awareness and good mid-court play would be a nice bonus (to play those softer shots from the mid court to get into attacking formation).

    In conclusion - you play very decent doubles and would benefit greatly from getting a partner that's more smash-oriented and also on your level of play Only real weakness on your part I spotted from my somewhat hasty (over-)view was the serve which should be worked on.
    Hope to see more in the future

    Thanks for your comments!

    I don't quite understand what staiger said either xD.

    J4ckie, I agree with about rushing to the net to be able to kill the shuttle. I should do some drills to get that extra power in the legs ^^.
    About my serve, what should I improve? I think they are quite close to the net and few people here can really attack it. Maybe they are a little bit slow?

    I played with another guy last year which has much more power than my current partner but sometimes I got annoyed with his hot temper.
    You can see there :

    I noticed that your serve was inconsistent (e.g. too many in the net). Maybe that is what jackie refers to as well?

    5.40 - You are caught out to backhand biased. You should be defending biased to forehand if anything here - you should be concentrating on down-the-line defense, and your partner should be primarily concentrating on 'channel' defense.

    watch how many times your racket drops below the tape after u serve and / or when u'r in attacking formation

    3:14 in the 3rd game. you serve, and just stand there watching the bird. Had you been ready with the racket up and got into a good ready position, that would've been a point in which you took control by doing a net kill judging from the height of the return.

    That's probably the biggest issue I see, is you'd lift ur racket up at the front when your PARTNER is hitting, and then drop it after that. At which point it doesn't come back up. A LOT of chances were missed simply because the racket wasn't up.

    Having your racket up puts pressure on the other guy to not hit such loose net shot returns, because he knows if your racket is up, anything loose results in an instant kill.

    Oh, yeah if it's about consistency, yes I need more pratice for sure ^^

    @Borbor : Yes, I noticed it as well but I keep my racket head down . Sometimes I think about it and lift my racket up but ended as usual after some rallies
