Hi again, Before you guys think that these are like some of Kevin Sukamuljo's serves...they are NOT!!. In fact, they are probably even crazier and more weird. Sounds ridiculous i know, even i couldnt believe it was possible. But my coach is an absolute god when it comes to the doubles serve. He probably even has more tricks i havent seen yet. First of all, the doubles serve is usually done right at the service line at the middle of the court and is hit with the backhand grip.This concept is known to all players but my coach NEVER, i mean NEVER does that. Now, on to how it is done. His serves always start half a foot behind the service line, in the middle of the service area and with the FOREHAND grip (He rarely uses his backhand, this is why he usually plays doubles). When he is serving to the right side of the court he serves it in a way that the shuttle flies very quick and flat through a bit of the left court and goes to my backhand side. As you normally receive the serve close to the service line while standing in the middle, you absolutely CANNOT even hit the shuttle with your forehand let alone trying to do a push. This not only catches you off guard but also makes you return very WEAK pretty much ending the rally before it even started. At first i started dealing with it by standing way back to where you would serve in singles and right next to the middle court line.You'd think his tricks stop there but nah. The moment he sees me doing that, he stands to the right side of the court, this time closer to the service line, still with the FOREHAND grip makes a hairpin serve (pretty much a cross court net shot) to the front-right corner of my court. This is even harder to get as you MUST lunge forward and make a lift( if you can make it there) and his partner finishes it off with a smash again, finishing the rally before it started. When he is serving to left side of the court tho it is easier to receive but i still have to stand in a less attacking position but the point is the same: to not let anyone be able to attack the shuttle reliably. I dont know how or even where he learnt this from, are there like some ancient badminton gods secretly giving people special powers or something?! If you guys know how to deal with this, i'd be more than happy to hear you out.
