    Its al about speed, you have to be fast, not to far away from the net. Pounce like a cat and just flick the racket at the shuttle hitting downwards, hitting hard is not important, jus hit it down and 9/10 you will win point

    He brushes his racquet up while tapping the bird down.

    Considering that he committed a fault while doing it, perhaps not the best shot to be admiring/emulating eh?

    it was a fault. LCW's racket is over the net.

    how to do that?
    learn the top-spin. :D

    Follow through is allow in the game (Racket over the net) as long as the contact of the shuttle is on our own side.

    The replay from the video shows that the shuttle is already on LCW side but unfortunately he got penalised for it.

    while in play, it is a fault if the racket is over the net.

    13.4.2

    invades an opponent's court over the net with racket or person except that the striker may follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke after the initial point of contact with the shuttle is on the striker's side of the net;

    sorry, but no, it's not a fault.

    follow-through is not a fault.

    Look where the foot lands after the shot... I think that's why it was called a fault.

    No the foot thing is fine ( I think ) , in fact I think a lot of international players get trained to do this.

    I have seen it many times.

    To do the shot :

    As you can see Lee Chong Wei , has done a good net shot , and so he had his racket foot in front of his non racket foot , where his racket foot was on the service line.

    He then mentally waits for the shuttle to be played again to the net , and then he pounces with great speed. People have described it as a top - spin shot , which is partially correct , it is like playing top spin on the shot.
    This shot is a very hard shot , particularly when your opponent is likeley to tumble your shot back , so it will be hard to control , and you need to be very fast!

    The backhand feather-swipe is even harder.

    This shot is an amazing one , and Lee Chong Wei probably uses it more than any other international player , that I have seen.

    Actually this is a type of brush stroke, played either forehand or backhand. In fact it can be played even after the shuttle has dropped down the net marginally, which will require the brush stroke to have an upward movement. The key is timing in which you synchronize your brush stroke with the opponent's net shot as he is about to take it. Not many players play this type of net brush stroke, but it can draw gasp of disbelief from your opponents. However this brush stroke can be neutralized if the opponent nets his shot away from straight up and puts it away at an angle instead.

    Yeah, it's one of LCW's trademark shots.
    I was just going to ask why other top MS dont play this shot as often but you've just answered it. :D

    Seen it before..

    ..performed by him and other MS players..

    ..the keys are (as mentioned by others):
    - Anticipation
    - Timing
    - Since shuttle is barely passing the net, LCW had to use a side/swipe/brush stroke..but yet was still called a fault..

    But boy, that was a very close call made by the umpire. Racket could've passed or not passed the net when the racket struck the shuttle..Foot definitely crossed the net, but doubt it's a fault..

    Yeah, as far as the video went, it is possible that the part of his racquet that made contact with the shuttle was over the net. Hard to be sure. I just thought I'd point out that it apparently was called a fault. As for how to play the shot... it's not really all that difficult if you're fast enough. It's really just about getting your racquet to the bird before it drops too far below the tape. Once you get there, you just... brush at it. It's pretty common in doubles at a non-elite level.

    Sorry I didn't understand you. Maybe because it is 10:00pm here:p.

    Mmmm , This shot is also risky because a lot of the times I have seen singles players using the "feather-swipe" and the opponent simply turns around and lifts the shot to the back. But it is a risk a player has to take , and to try and hit the shot away from the opponent.

    Because the player puts all their effort into this shot , recoverey is hard , so if your opponent does return the shot reasonably well - they might win the point.

    Why other Mens Singles players don't play it:

    - It is a hard shot with a great deal of anticipation needed , quick reflexes and very fast movement.

    - The recoverey is hard , as I said above.

    - The shot could go in the net or out , and is extremely hard to control.

    Taneepak describes a brush kill where the bird is below the net, this causes the bird to fly almost flat quickly to the backcourt, so it only useful when the opponent is trapped at the net, but LCW has been caught where his opponents have been able to kill off his brush kills which were too ambitious.
