Stop with this Pusher Garbage!!!!

Why are there so many upset fans over the fact that Jelena Jankovic made it to the final because she plays like a 'pusher'?

There is more than just 1 style of play in tennis. Why is one style of play looked at as negative?

One of the greatest things about the sport of tennis is that it dosn't matter what type of game you play, as long as it gets you a win then that alone is enough.

When Jankovic wins people complain that it is an embaressment because she is a 'pusher'. When Sharapova wins people complain it is an embaressment because she is a 'brainless ball basher'.

Jankovic's style of play is just as legitimate as any other top 10 player out there, if players who aren't 'pushers' cant hit through her consitency and defensive capabilities then they should go work out how to overcome it. Thats the bottom line.

The amount of bitterness that is being spewed out all over the board at the moment is just ridiculous.

Anyone else agree?
