Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

I'm curious to see what others think, often she has a very low winner count and a very low unforced error count, but when i watch her, i don't see her "pushing", what do you think?

Re: Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

Shes nowhere near being a pusher. Complete opposite. She's an attacking player, dont think ive ever seen her moonball

Re: Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

Not hitting winners doesn't automatically make you a pusher...

Marion is a grinder. She dictates play with her angled shots and ultimately causes her opponent to make a FORCED error, but she doesn't hit many outright winners because she actually doesn't hit very hard.

On the other hand, a pusher would not dictate play but would throw everything back at half-pace, being pushed around and around the court and frustrates her opponent into committing UNFORCED errors. Obviously, they don't hit many winners because they don't even try to find openings to hit winners but just try to retrieve everything.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

What a poll.
Those who think she's a pusher should watch her 4r match from AO this year against Janković. She sure did push that ball right.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

it looks so far that the consensus is going to be one sided. When i watch her i don't see "push" at all, but often she relies on her opponent to make the mistake to win the point.

This isn't a negative thing at all, i was just curious to know if this is classified as pushing

If this is supposed to be a joke it's not even remotely funny.

P.S.
Instead of creating moronic threads you could have learned how to spell Zvonareva's name.

Re: Is Marion Bartoli A Pusher?

You knew she wasn't a pusher before you posted this thread. I've never read anyone refering to her as one on here. Are you really that desperate for attention?

Hey guys give me a break, i'm only extrapolating from recent stats, in my opinion she isn't one, but i thought it warranted a question. I'm still a bit confused on what the total boundaries of being a "pusher" are. Excuse me for being lame
