Is Aga Radwanska still a pusher?

It does not make sense to me that people still say she is comparable to Pushniacki's great ability to push. I don't see it that way at all.
Here's a stat to alter your decision:
in today's much vs wickmayer
Winners Aga 53. Wick 52. Ue Aga 27 wick 52.
According to these stats if one calls Aga a pusher, then Wickmayer is a pusher too!
What do you say?

Re: Is Aga Radwanska still a pusher?

I was really impressed with Aga's performance today against Wickmayer. I think she's definitely not a pusher, so many great winners.

Re: Is Aga Radwanska still a pusher?

She always adapts her gamestyle to her opponent. When she faces some shitty Malek or Kudryavtseva she simply gets the ball over the net cuz they will self-destruct and there's no need to be offensive.

Not really. She's just a bad player in general.

Re: Is Aga Radwanska still a pusher?

On most point she indeed just pushes the ball manouvring her opponent around the court. Once her opponent isbadly placed on court, she tends to hit the ball more. So yes, she's still a pusher.

Go watch her match vs Safina at Sydney.
In fact calling her a pusher would be too generous. She's just a non-entity.

Don't think one match will change people's perception of her..

Well, in my opinion you can't judge that by just one match in which she has a pretty good amount of winners.

Jelena Dokić ~ Kim Clijsters
Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Jelena Ostapenko - Mona Barthel
Petra Cetkovská - Jana Čepelová
Karolina Šprem - Mirjana Lučić
Daniela Hantuchová - Ivana Lisjak

Re: Is Aga Radwanska still a pusher?

She's not a pusher.

I actually hate that term.. it's totally demeaning and is just a way to discredit a player whose gamestyle you don't like.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
