I've finally got round to taking a video of singles play. I'd really appreciate any comments as to where I could potentially improve! For background, I lost the game 13-21. I was tired after playing 2 other singles games, and my opponent was more fresh, but I feel that your physical breaking point is where your flaws are highlighted anyway! Edit: I'm the one in black Edit 2: Current list of things to correct: 1) Increase contact point height 2) Lower/widen split step 3) Use left arm better 4) Focus on aiming my shots (over the net, deep clears/lifts) 5) Higher racquet carriage, pull racquet straight back 6) Avoid twirling racquet Some points I've noticed myself: 1) Split Step I do seem to split step mostly except for serve return (which I think is okay?). However, my split step timing is god-awful and sometimes even slows me down as I'm in the air when the shuttle is moving towards me (obvious when opponent sideline smashes and I can even make a sideways move). It's especially obvious as my opponent has a perfect split step timing. 2) Drop consistency I feel my drop shots are generally not moving my opponent and I need to improve these much more. 3) Energy Efficiency I feel like I'm using much more energy than my opponent (I was leading the first 5 points until the tiredness hit me). My form is noticeably better in the first few points, then it collapses to the point where I don't even chase the shuttle. I think this could be due to the mistimed split step causing me to having to use more explosive lunging. 4) Rear backhand footwork My rear backhand footwork pulls me too close to the corner (and restricts my stroke), and I stop taking a billion steps into that corner. I think this is just due to my lack of confidence in the backhand corner. I have a couple of okay backhand clears when I have plenty time, so I think I have the technique, I just need to do it more naturally. This makes sense since I haven't been practising the backhand footwork, as I was under the (false) impression that I could just get every shot on round the head instead. Overall, I am actually quite pleased with my footwork patterns and recovery, apart from the backhand footwork and the split step. I am more disappointed about my shot quality and consistency.
