Re: The Triumph of Push Theory
I remember a couple of years ago when "pusher" was popularized on the board, it came under a lot of attack by lots of smartass posters; that the word shouldn't be used to describe (even tongue-in-cheek way) players whose purpose is to put the ball back in court for the most part.
However, it survived and today it is even part of the standard tennis lexicon - so much that Sam Smith called Peer's game yesterday a pushing game (followed by a laugh ), and Jankovic's coach tells her on court no to push.
Push Theory has beaten all the odds and defeated all the naysayers.
I remain undefeated. I am a huge fan of women's tennis, and I don't use terms like 'pusher' and 'ball-basher' that are ultimately used to deride the players and the game. If you want to insult the players and the game, why even visit this site?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
