If Wozniacki is a pusher...

wouldn't Chris Evert be one as well?

I mean pretty sure her style was basically just pushing until someone makes an error and good anticipation, i.e. Wozniacki. Yeah she had great passing shots too but she needed to have them because she played in an era of netrushers. Woz lives in an era of baseline bashers so you don't see those passing shots. In fact when you look at her matches against good netplayers, she's pretty good at making them play tough low volley.

Obviously, she don't have 18 slams but just talking about the style, apparently, it IS possible to be a legend while pushing. Chris Evert proved it.

Re: If Wozniacki is a pusher...

ugh

In before, LOL YOU COMPARED WOZNIACKI TO AN ALL TIME GREAT

No I didn't you cretins. But when I see people saying how pushing doesn't win slams, I have to think of a certain someone.

Not hitting the ball hard ≠ not playing aggresively

Re: If Wozniacki is a pusher...

THE HELL WITH WOZNIACKI!!! I'M MORE THAN TIRED OF STUPID THREADS ABOUT HER!!!!!




Seriously it gets annoying

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: If Wozniacki is a pusher...

Evert is one of the top three or four most talented women to ever play tennis, this is just too much.

There is no such thing as "pushing" at a professional level. It's just a silly word used to have a go at players one doesn't like.

Evert didn't really play aggressively.
