Requirements for singles.

What are the requirements to be a good singles player ?? My opinion in no particular order except No 1.

  • Discipline
  • Good footwork and movement
  • High level of fitness
  • Mental strength
  • Able to hit the shuttle from anywhere in his court to anywhere in his opponents court.
  • Strong smash
  • Commanding at the net, killer instinct...not passive
  • Obviously to have a good all round shot selection in all situations
  • A thinking mind, strategic and always has plan A, B and even C when needed
  • Physically, strong calves and quads with a slim torso are preferable.
