In the badminton world, a revolutionary spin-serve called "Unreturnable" is creating headlines

'Unreturnable' new spin-serve making waves in the world of badminton


Delhi, India: Imagine having a serve that cannot be returned in a fast-paced sport like badminton. That would be a phenomenal weapon to have in your stockpile. Right? In fact, something similar has recently caused a stir in the badminton community.

In the world of badminton, a new "unreturnable" spin-serve has sparked outrage and piqued the interest of the best players worldwide.

Marcus Rindshoj, a doubles player from Denmark, is said to have been the first to use this serve, and he won a lot of points with it at the Polish Open last month.

Attempting their hand to realize this new stunt, even the Indian shuttlers are placing in the hard yards to dominate the most recent expertise.

"We have been trying this for many days but couldn't figure it out," India's world number one doubles player Satwiksairaj Rankireddy said. 5 and Chirag Shetty, as reported by PTI from Hyderabad.

"Just prior to the Asia Championships in Dubai, we began practicing. Because everyone is doing it, Coach Mathias Boe has instructed us to practice it for 30 to 40 minutes every day. But everyone will have a hard time. All European players are doing it now that someone started it in Denmark."

So, exactly what is this most recent spin serve?

This is a kind of serve in which the shuttler tries to spin the shuttlecock's cork with a carrom strike motion before sending it across the net with the racquet. The shuttler holds the cork between their thumb and middle finger.

The opponents have struggled to return this spin serve as it twists and falls across the net, proving to be a challenge for them.

Arun Vishnu, the coach of India's doubles team, said that while it can be difficult to master, it can be beneficial to the players.

"We are trying, but getting that consistency will take time. It is difficult, as a matter of fact, it's truly challenging. Some of them are practicing it; if they learn it, it will be beneficial and could be beneficial," he stated.

"We had given the players access to the videos. I had additionally attempted it ordinarily yet took care of business just two times out of multiple times. So it's hard. Let's hope that some of them succeed."

World no 23 MR Arjun, who is as of now playing in the determination preliminaries for the Asian Games, said it is hard to execute.

"With the holding of the shuttle and the execution, we are all trying to get that feel. However, it's hard to do because we have to know exactly when to spin and touch the shuttle. I figure we will be capable in get it my game in couple of months."

Satwik believes that while spin serves have been popular for a long time, this new variation could have a significant impact on the game, making it simultaneously "random" and "boring."

"It is unplayable. It was recently used by a Korean man during the ABC in Dubai. Just by serving, he scored 10 to 12 points. They began doing this help and the resistance could do nothing, they were simply standing and lifting the bus, they can't assault, they can't get. It appeared as though some novices were playing.

Therefore, I don't believe it's a good idea. I believe it gives the game an unfair advantage, will diminish its charm, and will make it boring.

Even though this most recent spin serve is legal, it could attract the attention of the BWF, the sport's global governing body, which has intervened on occasion to maintain the game's equilibrium.

Everyone's eyes are presently on the Sudirman Cup from May 14 to 21 as players might evaluate this most recent serve for their potential benefit.

"I suppose that everyone will gradually learn it and use it in the matches. Will check in the Sudirman Cup to see if anyone is doing it," Satwik concluded.
