  1. I m still always amazed by your finger s strengh .May I ask you with what kind of racquet/string/tension are you playing Lee? It doesn't seem like you use a head heavy racquet to get such a speed . Am I wrong? I got a Z Force and for the forehand it s well ok low and flick also but ont he backhand to reproduce a flick serve as you can produce jezz I should be flash gordon to generate such speed with such a head heavy balance.

  2. I am using Yehlex LJB racket and BG 65 string. Yes it is important to use quality racket but I put more weight to the skills and and strength of fingers and forearm and wrist power over the racket. If you have skill and strength then you can still produce good shots with bit of poor racket but you can not do the other way round. Lee

  6. If you play Mixed then you should do flick to opponent lady player. If you do level doubles then you have to see where your opponent is standing to recieve your service. If he is standing very close to the service line then you should flick to see how he respond. Lee

  7. Hey coach Lee, what do you think of using a flick serve regularly in singles against an opponent, who has no violent smash but a lot of overhead deception. When I serve low, he plays very flat and deep in my backhand/forehand corner; if I serve high he always plays deceptive drop shots. By playing flicks regularly I could reduce his time to play deceptive.

  8. That is perfact choice of service. That way you can reduce his strength. I would do same as you are doing. Lee

  9. Thanks. I will try that.

  10. You are very welcome. Lee

  11. I do not think it is because of finger power. It is the timing of hit and timing of using your finger power. Try to looking at your skill and change some different ways to do it. You may push it rather then tap it. Instead of short tap you may try to hit too hard and end up pushing it. Please try again. Lee

  12. I hope it gets better. Lee

  13. I've tried to add this strategy to my game and I've won the match against an opponent I've always lost before the very first time. Thanks!

  14. I am so pleased to know. Very well done. Lee

  15. Coach Lee, what can I do to improve the power of my flick serve to get it high and far to the back in singles? In doubles play it is fine because I am serving at the line and only going to the back service line, but in singles because I need to cover more court after the serve I usually stand about two feet behind the service line. Because of this my flick serve is often too flat, easy to cut off, and only goes to the doubles service line which gives me very little time to prepare. Thank you.

  16. I think it is less likely caused by lack of your power but more likely caused by skill you are using. Try to find a box of send hnad shuttlecocks and go to the court and spend one hour practicing your service. 9 out of 10 times you will be able to find out the way to flick longer by your self. Please try and let me know. Lee

  17. Thank you for your suggestion coach. I will definitely try at my next session.

  18. Wish you good luck. Lee

  19. how to make backhand flick service shuttle not pass the base line in double.. where should i look and aim.

  20. Try not to push too much or try to win a point with it. Normally player make too long flick because of the intention to get point from it. You can aim to centre corner or the wider corner. Lee

  21. That is very good well done and I am very pleased. Lee

  22. Hello Coach Lee,
    what grip do I have to use for the flick serve? Backhand grip with thumb pressing against the wide side of the handle? How relaxed should my grip be at the beginning of the motion and immediately before and at the moment of contact?

  23. Yes grip is right. When you set to serve your grip should be 2 tention out of 10. Just before the contact the tention should be 6-7 out of 10. Some may do 0 out of 10 at the seting and as they hit they grip 8 or 9 out 10. I do not think it is good. Lose control of racket and power in this way and resulting pushing the shuttlecock rather then sharp tap. Lee

  24. I want to ask how to judge if we struck above our waist?

  25. Only way is by looking. Yes you are right there can be disagreement between players. Lee

  26. Then, the key is when you are going to hit the shuttle, turn the racket a little so it would be looking the oponent's roof??

  27. Yes that is right. Lee

  28. Excellent training videos. Have been a follower of Lee for three years. Njau Embu
