Comment:

For all suggestions, the author assumes that all strokes are performed in the appropriate quality badminton strings. Therefore, the proposed solution “killing” is not mentioned separately, since it is assumed that the failed blows are “sunk”. Also, the option “exemption to the baseline” is not mentioned, since this is always only the second, usually the third best choice.

Reading – Solving 1st – 3rd beat (double)

Not only the placement of the double markup is of great importance but the overall markup situation. In this context, it is necessary to work out:

 

  • What are reasonable assumptions?
  • “Off the bat” – do not hit the range of the server or both opponents!
  • “Where it hurts!” – into the backhand area of ​​the opponents!
  • “Not too passive!” – If you are not under pressure yourself, avoid unnecessary playing.
  • “Safety first” – Placement solutions against speed and deception solutions.
  • “Read-Solve” – ​​Do not play the net after a good swipe bonus.
  • What are the promising third blows?
  • What is the impact of the whole impact situation on the game center for both players?
