Hi all, I have been playing badminton doubles for quite some time now but only recently I started to really analyse and breakdown all my badminton habits. One of the things that bug me is the positioning after receiving serve. Here's the scenario: I'm receiving serve from the opponent and I managed to return it by pushing the shuttle deep to corners (sometimes a bit too high which opens up the option for the back opponent to do quick smash), should I Commit and stay in front Push and return back to my box Vary 1 or 2 depending on the quality of the push (this might not be easy for my partner because he will have to react based on my subjective definition of the quality of the push) I noticed in my circle of friends including myself we are very used to doing 2, I have discussed with them about it but they all think that 2 is the better option, the reason being a fast smash or return to the sides will be difficult to return if we do 1. I'm convinced recently that 1 is the better option because I feel when returning serve, we should maintain a front-back attack position and the idea of doing number 2 strips that offensive advantage and turns it to a defensive position (box position). Some advice on this would be nice. Thanks!
