How to beat aggresive players?
Hey guys. I just played a singles match and lost to a very aggresive player. I tried to keep the shuttle low, cause if i lift, he'll smash immediately. I need tips on how to beat this kind of player

uhh very broad question ;p but ill try to answer non-ambiguously. Uhh Okay, If hes Slow: You can always just add disguise to your shots, so he wont get into position fast enough to hammer down the smashes (as that seems to be the main problem as ur mentioning). If hes fast and aggressive, you probably will need to slow the pace down by doing some slow pace disguised drop shots, and if you choose to lift make sure its deep in his court. Generally speaking, I personally get rid of aggressive players, by giving them an easy high serve to the corner, so 90% of the time theyll play a straight smash, cover it, repeat a few times and then theyll change start as they wont want to waste energy... but thats a lot more of a gamble / dependant on various things.

learn to be more aggressive by hitting harder and being more consistent and move around the court faster.

If he's inherently better, fitter, and more aggressive than you, then there's nothing you can do.

be accurate with your shots - four corners, cross court blocking - make them think twice about attacking! Use attacking clear as much as possible when forced to clear

If you can beat him in a game where there are no smashes, then it's most likely your footwork and positioning. You might just be out of position while defending his smashes.
If you lose in a game with no smashes, then he's just more experienced. Eventually you will win a few if you continue to play players better than you.

beat them at their own game and fight fire with fire. Or improve your defense and tire them out - rally and counterattack

Why nobody tell him the truth, his opponent is better.

increase your speed consistently.
You can try it for the first 5 points to see if it works. Then it is a matter if you can last with the speed. Good luck.
alternatively more low shots or drive of course.

Do what the indonesians are best at... Keep everything low and keep changing the pace.

Improve the quality of your lift, deeper and higher.

Improve your defence to deal with his aggressive plays. If you had the defence of Lee Chong Wei even if you smash like a 5 year old you can beat your opponent because you can cover the whole court efficiently. Aim to improve speed so you can run around, awareness to increase your reaction speed in order to defend, and practice like mad.

If he's a very aggresive player who goes full out, no mercy on you, the best method is to pressure him. Hit into the corners of the court and as near to the net as you possibly can. Make him run till he can't focus entirely on his shots.

Believe it or not , flick serve , clear , lifts are very useful against these opponents.
Why? Flicks make him run to the end court losing him energy , if he smashes , it will do no good as the shuttle is farther from you thus making it easier to defend. Do attack clears as your opponent usually turns these into a clear (usually up to the mid court) then you can just smash it. Lifts , very useful too . Be sure to lift as far as to the rear court , and not to the mid court because if you do it up to midcourt only , he will smash and it will be harder to defend.He will soon tire out and you can gain the upper hand.
Take note that my opinions on these are base on normal smashes , and not jump smash. Goodluck
