Yes. A consistent theme of your previous play was smashing at a time that would make yourself disadvantaged more often. Although you did start to temper the tendencies, it was still tough. Modern singles is more patient play than before. When we changed from the old scoring system to this present one, the thinking was it would favour attacking players more. Initially it did. But now we see defence has improved with faster paced and much longer rallies. Physiologically, I think that means players are close to their anaerobic capacity and sustained smashing as part of continually attempting to force a mistake from the opponent is more prone to yourself making errors. I remember watching Chen Long against Son wan Ho in HK. The China coach kept saying ‘patience patience’ and Chen Long is one of the most boring singles players on the planet. Another Singaporean coach kept saying to her player ‘no problem no problem ‘ in order to get her player to focus on the next point. But going back to your situation, being confident in playing out rallies will do wonders for your game. Having the ability to play 30minutes of continuous neutral clears in one rally as well as being able to chase the shuttle makes a player an extremely tough cookie to beat.
