I would imagine that many people here are making a judgement based on the phrase "professional league". As LD rules states, the use of this word means I am thinking of national and international standard players - these are the professionals.
However, perhaps you mean "official" league or something like that, some sort of competitive or club league?
I think if we cleared that up, then we would have a better understanding of the standard that you are at, and how to best advise you.
By the way, did you have a chance to watch that match I posted between Pullela Gopichand and Peter Gade in the All England Semi Finals in 2001? It really is a great match, well worth watching Pullela Gopichand is such a unique player! Very deceptive!

Wait. Question here. Trick shot is different from deceptive shot, right?
I can do a little deceptive shot by doing the hold and hit technique. I think it's one of the things that seperate advanced players from intermediate players. A more difficult deceptive shot is the double motion, which is rarely used especially in doubles (as doubles is faster).
Trick shots are for show boating. I mean, I rarely see professional players do trickshots in tournaments.
IMO, I think Indonesians are the most deceptive players. Chinese players are more basic (although could be deceptive if they wanted to), but they're really fast. The same goes for Koreans.

trickshots, to me, are things like
'round the back'
'through the legs'
'miss a backhand overhead, then reverse under arm it'
deception, to a more or lesser extent, is more like
feint clear then net
show straight net then cross-court net
