    That's where I am stuck at right now, I simply do not know how to challenge these guys pace, tactics/strategy wise its something that I simply am not able to do.

    The toughest part is trying to learn all this, somebody can tell me it and I can watch it and understand it but then when it comes to a game I simply am not able to bring it out and go for it which is why these guys will walk all over me. My game is very 1 dimensional its the same speed and pace the whole time through not much variation. The brutal part is knowing this while its happening and for whatever reason not changing it.

    It is just me having a hard time trying to change and implement all these other aspects into it and that is honestly one of the biggest things that I am lacking. Its just the how do I make myself do it that is the hard part, I know that I need to and everything but its a mental thing right now more than anything.

    I can only draw upon my own experience of my training under one coach. He was a former top 20 singles player. We worked a lot on movement, footwork and balance. In particular, rhythm and changing pace of movement from one corner to another corner was something I found particularly interesting. So firstly, are you really able to practice that with your coach?

    Secondly, when you train with training partners, are you really incorporating those techniques properly into your training? Quite possibly not. As I remarked, your rallies seem to be more like training routines that practice consistency of multiple shuttle runs rather than that which simulate game conditions.

    Just to give a little example, about ten years ago, I was watching the practice courts of the HK Open and it happened to be the Canadian team. I saw one girl do her practice needing to play the netshot, then move back and hit the smash. To cut a long story short, I felt she was practicing with an incorrect positioning on the court. Thus , it was comprising the quality of the practice. I came away thinking, a) why is she practicing it incorrectly?, and b) why didn't her practice partners correct her?

    Thirdly, access to the appropriate coaching advice is always a consideration. Can that coach effect the change in you? For instance, one of the last things we worked upon was using core muscles to pull my upper body faster forward for the low shots. Small difference in using the body but a significant resultant difference on the movement. Can your coach pick up those details in you and effect the change? That is probably the toughest part for you in your locality.

    Just a bit of watching for anyone who wants to.

    I'm near side in the black, new toy (camera) to play with and i'm checking out the angles it makes!

    @nbonkowsky
    These are my observations, hope you don't mind the directness
    1) your technique of hitting the shuttle is incorrect. it is too easy to read your shots because you are not using your wrist power and finger power. It seems to be your are relying on your arm swing power.
    The other drawback of your technique is lack of power. It is very obvious your power generation is one two notch lower than your opponent. For power smashes, your whole body and core must be rotated in one "violent" movement - it's not shown in your movement.
    2) because of 1) above, you cannot use the technique of hold n hit or using your wrist to change angle/length of shot. In short, there is no deception and Deception is Everything in singles.
    3) because of 3) above, you are not controlling the rally, and get moved around chasing the shuttle
    4) some of the key tactical questions are - why is he able to push you to do backhand clears so many times?
    5) why do you always do drop shots or smashes when he can easily defend and get you in trouble?
    6) do you know what is your greatest strength/weakness ? before you step on court, do you have a game plan, and if that doesn't work what is your plan B and C ?
    7) lastly, do not rush .....slow down. This is especially true when you are in a bad spell or your opponent suddenly gotten a run of points. Walk around the court, ask for change of shuttle, wipe and flick your sweat etc. You get the hint?

    Do not give up, you are already a victor by stepping on court. Press on! Train hard but SMART !!

    @nbonkowsky

    The first impression I get from watching this match: Why the heck is he trying to speed up the game so often!?

    Your strengths: Fast, agile player, solid shots, good clearing and dropping. Solid defense after baseline smashes.

    Weaknesses: Flat game, power smash.

    Based on these observations, your tactic should be clear: Slow down the pace of the game.

    If you have to clear, try to get it long and high enough to have time to cover the court. Very often, you play flat, fast clears that get intercepted and smashed. In drive-play, you're lost (he's good at that...). You should try to play soft net shots, slower (and long enough) clears. Solid shots that give you time and possibilities to profit from your good footwork and stamina. In flat, fast exchanges, you're lost.
    You can't overpower your opponents (your fast game isn't good enough!), but you can wear them out, give them opportunities to make mistakes. To me, you're clearly a defensive player. Rely on these strengths! Slow down the pace (in between rallies too, by the way...).

    DuckFeet smash 1: http://youtu.be/q0WDzV312ho
    DuckFeet smash 2: http://youtu.be/c0X96AwLt50

    Just a couple of very quick smash videos. I'm still moving backwards, robbing me of power. I think I reach better in 1. I am too curled up after my shot as well.

    Love that sound of Zymax and empty hall shame It's not feathers.

    Looks essentially right to me. I like how relaxed the stroke is, and I like that you're following through rather than using a "clippy" or "wristy" technique.

    You could reduce the length of the follow-through, however. At the moment you're following through behind your body quite a lot. Try reducing your follow through so that the racket head does not go past your body -- or at least, not far past it.

    Along similar lines, you might try reducing the amount of rotation in your stroke. I'm thinking of where the torso is pointing after your stroke -- it looks like your right shoulder is quite far forwards and your body is "facing" to the left a lot. Maybe reduce this a bit. This is probably connected to your long follow-through.

    Well... he is playing with plastic, which we know requires significantly more punching thru, as opposed to feather which requires a more crisp compact action.

    Having said that, yes he is overdoing the following thru a bit, to the point where it will definitely affect recovery for the next shot.

    Hm. To me, a smash is a smash. Shouldn't matter whether it's feather or plastic...on other shots, the difference in shuttles will come into play, but a full smash should always look the same.
    @DuckFeet : try to get your power more from rotating your body rather than just coiling it forward. Will help you get more power as well as better stability and recovery. Look at Jung Jae Sung's smash for clarification, if needed....or Ahsan's, although he overdoes it a bit

    Possibly he's also not using enough forearm pronation... If he did, he wouldn't have to follow thru forward as much.

    Love those non regulation net posts... have you ever intentionally tried aiming at them so that the shuttle would ricochet off them into the opponent's court?

    For both smashes? I went LJB style with the black one but for the blue one just threw my arm directly upwards and 'popped' the pronation. Probably why there's only a little skip and not a full step forward with my effort to get my weight behind it. I appreciate the feedback.

    And I can't sleep so I'm going to take a look at trinh's video not suggesting it will send me to sleep, its just preferable to starting that racquet restring. Yes I've had a couple of ciders...
