    The first thing my teammate on the court next to me (in blue in the video) said was "you play too hard all the time" at the interval and said it's more about working the corners in singles to get a chance to attack but if you watch you can see he's quite a handy player!

    I'm disappointed I didn't record the mixed match I played too. It was more my style- I played against the same opponent but in mixed doubles with a win in 2 sets. I'll make sure I charge the camera next time.
    Variation in your game is the word I am looking for. You tend to play the same shots with the return of serve i.e. either a net or low push clear (used more frequently in doubles). I would be looking for you to prepare the shot the same way, but be able to hit a netshot, push, low clear and high clear as your options.

    The opponent can prepare easily for your return of serve in this game. You already picked up the 'safe' shots issue. I also describe these shots as neutral shots - i.e. shots that make it difficult for the opponent to create an opportunity. They put pressure and frustrate the opponent.

    I would also work on controlling return of smashes better to add to your counter attack arsenal.

    But, in terms of technique, this was a game you could have won. Frustrating, innit!

    Purchased a new Canon t3i over the Christmas holidays and finally got the chance to record myself during varsity practice

    Things I need to work on (Mind you this is my first singles game since probably beginning of December so I wasn't really myself conditioning wise hence the many net shots)

    1. Still need to work on the consistency of my SERVE :/
    2. Keep the rally going / mix up my shots
    3. Even though I got a point, my smashes aren't as powerful as I want them to be (Need to adjust my technique)

    If anyone else has pointers or suggestions that you guys can comment on, that would be very much appreciated

    I'm in the black & white Victor attire btw.

    hard to suggest anything when it seems like you guys are just hitting it back and forth waiting for practice to be done

    yeah, that pretty much says it all.
    if you want to improve, you first have to show some dedication and take practice seriously. your focus is everywhere, but definately not on the court/at badminton.
    go ahead and have fun with your buddy, that's alright! but if you want to improve and get some advice, you should at least offer something serious to us and not that kind of unmotivated thing.

    fwiw: the "taufik-i-am-so-bored-and-cool-style" is only cool, when you're really really good! if performed by bad players, it's just ridiculous.

    from the way you hit the shuttle, I assume your grip is wrong. I would suggest learning how to hit a clear should be the first thing on your list.

    clue - your feet land too close together & frequently missing scissor action on drops and clears. The latter bit is just not efficient but the former is 'dangerous' in terms of injury. Your recovery after a jump is very lazy as well (I would say your footwork is lazy in general ).

    you guys are too hard on him.
    Maybe he's not being lazy, I've seen some seniors (60+) who move like him on court. So maybe he just suffers from a complete lack of conditioning, which makes him move like an athletic 60 year old.

    Fellow Canadian, keep practising hard and you'll eventually be able to move as well as any other recreational player. Also, practice your serves, cuz lets be honest, I've seen blind people with more consistent serves.

    no, we''re not!
    the guy in yellow is more concerned with what's going on in the rest of the gym, they often are confused about the score (i.e. not knowing from which side to serve) and their body-language clearly says: "i don't care.".

    this is not nearly maximum effort. more like 50%...

    Hm. First, urameatball is trolling ('[...] makes him move like an athletic 60 year old' is NOT defending him ).
    Second, this thread isn't called 'Post videos of yourself playing at 100%' And while I agree that you can't help a person that doesn't show their best effort and that it's clear he doesn't, let's try not to bash him too much. He did, after all, have the courage to upload that video, which is more than quite a few posters and lurkers here can say.
    Sending in my broken camera today, hope it gets fixed in time for my next tournaments (doubles 03.02. and singles 09.02.).

    Here is today's videos of me playing Cloud7z
    Honestly, this isn't my best game.
    I found it hard to grip the floor, the floor was slippery (don't know why)
    Sorry for the video quality, recorded off my phone

    Far too many errors just from returning serve. Seems like you're trying to play like Taufik which will never work ever. You pick up your speed later on (haven't watched it fully yet) but still your shot choice needs to be worked on more. Plenty of times (2:48 for example) you play a high lift as your third shot when you're under no pressure. This happens a few times and although it's better than hitting it into the net (which you also do a few times) it's still a nothing shot. You put no pressure on your opponent, and give him a chance to control the rally. Oh, and the forehand serve at 3:30 is... Well you don't need me to tell you what it is!

    Your backhand as well gets you in trouble a few times as well. It looks almost as though you panic when it comes onto your backhand side, and you play this backhand shot which just gives your opponent a free point because of how loopy and slow it is. You need to work on this shot, it's a weakness in all players games at this level, but it costs so many points in a game. Maybe you should consider shifting your base position when you feel your opponent has the option to play a shot that can pressurise your backhand.

    If I sound too critical I apologise, I don't know what level you're attempting to reach, but there are a lot of basic things that need to be improved on to get to the next level.

    All the best.

    bring a tripod, never a female friend. It keeps the distraction to a minimum

    I watched with the sound down, camera moving was also annoying!

    Hmm... I see, I will bear that mind, to have more variety of shots and prevent from lifting.
    That forehand serve was unexpected myself as well! hahaha :S
    My backhand seems to be going downhill, I used to be able to play high and deep backhand clears but... You have seen the video, not good.

    Its fine, it helps me think, what I need to bring to the court next time.

    very lazy on b/h (you could take more on f/h), especially considering how short your b/h clears are...

    when you walk back to base you are very upright and often your split is done when still standing (or not done at all)

    At the front you seem slow and take net shots very low - maybe because of the floor.

    Examples where you could improve your shot disguise - 2:43 4:10. You could address + hold the shuttle, but instead your racket is very far from the shuttle and you only have one option to play.

    your commentators were obviously experienced and added some very insightful comments lol
