For some reason, i play better on the worse sides all the time.
There must be something wrong with me x.x

with the NSS, do you choose to serve or receive first? i personally choose to receive since you can begin your attack right away.

mostly the worse side means you have problems to see the shuttle because of blinding light or dark area.

Better or worse side?
i dont get it!!!
if you win the coin toss why would you choose the worse side? i mean most people would want to choose the better side?

Best of 3 therefore 2 games on better side.

It's not how/where you start, it's how/where you finish
Based on the saying "It's not how/where you start, it's how/where you finish"... I would chose the 'Worse side' first.

haha, it does not really matter any more because of the rally system now, of either to serve or recieve first.
always choose the better side, but for international tournaments... how do you determine a better or worst side?

If you take into account that the "better" side WILL give you more of an advantage (implicit in the word better), and therefore a greater chance to win, it would make sense to choose the "better" side first.
Set 1: Better side --> Increased chance of winning
Set 2: Worse side --> Decreased chance of winning
Set 3: Better side --> Increased chance of winning
Therefore, there is an increased chance of winning 2 sets out of 3.
If you were to choose the worse side first, then to win you'll have to compete against both your opponent and your environment. Doesn't make sense.

Really? I didn't know about that rule =/
I suppose that changes things, and makes the decision quite a bit different.

I think the real question is.. what's the better side? Lighting, draft indoors,court surface.. Feng Shui.. so many factors, lol.

Worse side first... Even when I lose on the first set, I know I got a better side to go for come back....
I don't understand why people kept saying 2 games on better side. On 3rd there will be a swap over.

I always chose the good side - since getting the early lead in a potential 3.rd set is soooooo important mentally!
