maybe ‘cos you’re in Australia everything’s upside down? 😉
on a more serious note, is this doubles or singles? Maybe you can draw something in mspaint?
are you talking about a drive with a RTH type action?
maybe you can use mspaint to show what you are referring to him doing and what you are referring to you doing.
I recall an old game where my and the guy opposite was in a drives battle and I was standing on the side of the court where my forehand is predominent and driving it back at him and the shuttle could’ve been either side of me. If a bit to my backhand side while I was on that side of the court, I could have used backhand grip or it RTH when it went to my backhand side. In that instance I used backhand grip for both sides. But I could have crouched and used forehand grip all sides.. Or changed grip re each side.
