Okay, I have an issue with one player, who is able to pin me to the backline all the time. I'm sure that at the end I'm too slow and have not enough stamina, nevertheless, I'm unsure if most of his shots would be really inside. When I play vs other players, most if the time I 'feel' that a certain shot is too long and let it go out, but this player is like a power horse, hitting all shots with hi-power to the backline. Because all shots are played really long, I'm totaly unsure if they are in or not and therefor I try to take them all. So, the question is, how to measure if a shot is or was (after striking it back) too long, without sacrifying the rally ? I know, that pros often take a look at the lines and decide if it will be inside. But the pros are fast enough to reach the shuttle position early, I'm by far not that fast. So, is there an other trick or hint, like checking your foot position after hitting the shuttle, which will help me to measure the length of the opponents shot ? I just need a tool, a hint and not a 100% safe method.
