Re: Do you think "pushers" are respected enough for their style of play?
Well, what some people call pushing, isn't- imho.
And what they say isn't, IS.
For example, many say that Hingis pushed. I think that's dead wrong.
I think a distinction needs to be made between "Pusher" and "Counter Puncher." Hingis was a Counter-puncher. She used other peoples pace and tactical errors to EVENTUALLY go for her shots.
A pusher just sits back and waits for UNforced errors. It certainly is a valid style of play. I just HATE it. I prefer power and athleticism with some variety in there now and then.
