Badminton - Serve to the "Switch Spot"
Against Rushing Opponents
Dick Moss

Badminton is a game of inches, and you have to take advantage of your opponents' tendencies and weaknesses. For example, if your opponents are rushing your serve, here's one way to get a slight advantage.

The Tip
As your opponents cover the width of the court on your serve, watch for the location at where they switch from forehand to backhand. Then occasionally serve slightly wider than that point.

This will force your opponent to decide whether to use their forehand or backhand and may produce a moment of indecision. It may cause a muffed shot, or, if nothing else, a slight hesitation that should give you extra time to prepare for their return.
