    He performs them sometimes but am sure he could do them all match, the prob is they are used to trick ur opponent. If they are used all the time, they wont trick the opponent.

    And with regards to your 1st comment, all I can say is practice, practice practice

    Good luck

    trick shots are low percentage shots so pro's don't use them in game very often. the problem with a lot of trick shots is that it leaves you out of position if the opposition can return it. Also, even those good at trick shots don't play them as tight to the net as their normal shots consistantly.

    Out of all the backhand cross-court net shots Gade has played in tournaments, his trick-shot version probably accounts for less than one in 1000.

    The "standard" cross-court net shot is more accurate and allows you to take the shuttle earlier.

    It's still a wonderful shot, and I think it's worth learning just for the sheer fun of it. The forehand version is pretty difficult.

    I find that playing the gade crosscourt trickon the forhand easier than the backhand

    most of the trick shots need you to be in position very early, which does not happen much in the game time. Also, usually you have some other much safer choice.

    well when I say trickshots, I can play through the leg defense when defending a smash or drop. I can play this shot where you are at the back of the court and you swing the racket as if you are playing an overhead shot, and deliberatly miss the shuttle and play it through your legs, I can also defend shots played down the backhand side and you play the shot with your racket behind your back, I also can use deception and some other things, I haven't mastered these shots yet but I am geting there.
    I don't think I haven't explained it well so you might need a video to see what I am talking about
