could you please explain this rule for me cause I surely don't get it. How is having a pusher in a signature banning you from calling pusher a pusher? Aga is my fave tennis player and I call her a pusher. Is it also such a paradox for you?

Slowly making her move to inevitable Numero Uno position I guess...
She´s not getting to #1 as long as Azarenka and Kvitova play. She doesn´t have the physical strength of Wozniacki to literally push herself to 8-9 non-major titles in one year.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

She tanked the set to recover some stamina. She got exhausted in the second set because she played far too many matches this year though. The girl needs some rest.

Expected result, the way it came about is a bit puzzling.

No, but he just seems to hate pushers so I'm just curious as to his logic and I like Aga too and know she's a pusher.

Re: Dubai SF: Agnieszka Radwanska def. Jelena Jankovic 62 26 60

Oh Jelena new taste for being bagelled by lesser pushers

Although I quite like Radwanska, Jelena is my favourite, yet I'm glad she lost. It would have been awful to see her lose to Caroline again.

Also if Julia gets through, (hoping she does) it would be torture seeing two favourites battle it out when they both need a title.

I know Radwanska fans will harp on about how much better a player she is than Jelena now, but I'm not convinced 0 winners in a bagel set? now now. Also the only difference I can see is Radwanska is far superior at the net and more consistent. I still think Jelena is the better mover, and look how she wiped the floor with her in set 2. Also in all the years on tour Radwanska has yet to evolve her game to cope with big-hitters when they're on, at least Jelena has many good wins against such players.

Good tournament for Jelena really, never expected her to get past Sam

Yeah, but that is not how the statement reads.

That 3rd set was bizarre.

Where is the happy, smiling Jelena of a few years ago?

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Honestly, Fluffwanska sometimes looks more of a pusher than Wozniacki on her worst days. At least the Woz can carry some weight of shot on her strokes. Fluff's ball striking can be so terrible and ungainly that it technically looks like a push.

The same would probably be true of Wozniacki if she ever tried to transform into a ballbasher.
you are wrong. she lost that game easily, because the momentum of the match was broken becayse aga went for a long break after 2nd set. jankovic was too cold for the restart ... call it that she was ambushed. Wouldn't have mattered had she got that 2nd game.

no one rational would be arguing rad is a better player than jj. though as for now jj is deteriorating, sure she had glimpses of what rad will most probably never have, and i actually think she is striking the ball very well in 2012, but it really means nothing when she can't get herself together. she is getting old, and it seems she will never be a good match player ever again.
