    Sorry, miscommented. I myself don't play tennis. Thus I needed a discussion with my tennis friend instead of with myself XP

    I figured he's good enough to know well enough the motions: he made traveling team last fall quarter at UCD, but didn't have the time to play.

    Yes I go to UCD, I'm a second year Biochem major. Do you go to Davis? And I see you're also a new-ish member here, welcome to the forums.

    Back to the original point though, I still maintain hitting a slice motion with the smash slows it down. While it makes for a weak smash, if done properly, it could be a tactic in deception. Providing you have a good regular smash to go along with that "slice smash."

    I'm actually a very old veteran here. But I made a new username. =/

    I've PMed the moderator or something a long time ago, and they won't switch my username. T_T

    I'm a freshmen Human Development major.

    While it is true that the slice slows down a smash, I don't recall us debating that argument.

    Oops, I apologize BrioCloud. Welcome back.

    We weren't debating whether the slice slowed down a smash. But I was just trying to get back on topic. I have more questions to ask, but I'll just PM you.

    Hi canti, yes I played in the Fall Davis Open this year. I play Men's Singles, I lost my first match but I got up to second round of consolation. I wish they let us play real games for consolation though, and I wish it was it was better organized. Oh well. Did you?

    There is so much you can do to improve the power of your smash. I'm currently working on a program to disect the smash and re-build it. This includes training for strength and power and how to improve technique too.

    I'm not at the stage to say too much more yet, but I'm not far off proving that you can get an additional 20-50% more from your smash by following a program.

    I'll be filming and writing articles about the "How to develop a Powerful smash" program very soon.

    To your success.

    Your comment is "Tennis and badminton do not share the same motion for the same shot."

    The names of shots does not matter. What matters is, the serve in tennis, and the smash in badminton are identical. Debating between the motion similarities of the names of lets say a backhand drop in tennis, and a backhand drop in badminton is meaningless.

    Do you go to UC Davis? I'm go to Davis. o_O
    incorrect. it may look the same, but tennis serve and badminton smash are fundamentally different. when serving in tennis, you strike the ball with your wrist straight, only pronating the forearm. in a badminton smash, immediately after the point of contact, forearm pronation and a very fast wrist snap is needed. so although they may look the same, both are vastly different.

    that said, the means of getting power for a tennis serve and badminton smash is similar. a good balance point is needed, as you extend upwards (usually through jumping) the power comes from your legs, core muscles, back, shoulder and arm. all of this is ultimately transferred through your wrist (in badminton).
