The best thing is to play tennis so you win matches consistently. For some it will be high risk power game for others defensive skills with changing pace etc.. So it really doesn't matter. Winning is what matters.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!

Hitting into the doubles alley on big points = no brains,
or no stamina. The best pushers are very fit and patient, and use that as their weapon

Unable and Unwilling to be aggressive = no brains. I've seen enough matches of Caroline where she has been on her way to a loss and has been unwilling to change up her tactics AT ALL to know that her pushing isn't some kind of smart tactic. Sure it's winning her matches and this makes her look like some amazing tactician or something, but it's just the same as a "basher" playing well and people calling her "fearless" or whatever. Pushing isn't smart, point construction, shot selection and using the right strategy at the right time is smart.

I think Wozniacki gets nervous.
She was much more aggressive against Kirilenko and Petrova than Radwanska.
I expect a lot of pushing in this final.

What? Kirilenko and Petrova were the aggressors in their matches. They just sucked.

Caro controlled the points. She let down early in set 2, otherwise, Nadia and Maria were not even in the match

I don't mean to patronize anyone with that statement. I am just tired of the ballbasher vs. pusher wars among supposedly tennis fans and to great extend experts. It is meaningless and it is used as a tool to express hatred which makes me tired as well. I do realize that the statement is obvious, but it seems that in the heat of the "battle" people lose that perspective anyway.

And brainless pushers consistently prove they are not able to win a big thing.

Anyway, answering the OP question -- both are painful to watch but ballbashers at least end their tortures quicker and their delusional fans don't proclaim them to be "smart players".
