Re: If Wozniacki is a "pusher" . .

Agreed! she hit lots of winner and some points were amazing. Especially that 2-2 game in the second. That 5th game must have lasted 20+ minutes. Calling her a pusher is so unfair. But I'd rather be a pusher than brainless ball-basher.

He's called a moonballer not a pusher.

But yeah he does play defensive tennis quite a lot. Especially when he's tight.

nope, "pusher" is too nice of a word for him - he's simply a talentless moonballer...

Okay. I didn't know so may people considered Nadal a "pusher." I guess the term must now be a compliment because Nadal plays great tennis - as does Wozniacki. Or at least she did today which means she's got the game to do it.

Re: If Wozniacki is a "pusher" . .

I thought the same thing.... how a pusher can hit 22 winners on a SINGLE set?? I don´t even know how many in the match... those stupid haters...

But caro can play like a pusher if she wants, but only when she doesn´t know what to do! She just should stick with the game she played today: smart and agressive when it counts!

Re: If Wozniacki is a "pusher" . .

Just because she was allowed to hit winners in 1 set throughout the year, she is an aggressive player now? Have you seen her play rest of the year?
