Exclamation Name a match your fave played like a pusher

I'll start
Zvonareva: vs Ivanovic 2009 IW
Safina: vs Kvitova USO 2009
Peer: anytime she faces Venus
Oudin: her USO 2009 run pushing 3 Russians to their deaths
Azarenka: her last 3 matches against Kvitova
Kvitova: tried to push (or put on the brakes), but failed vs Sharapova 2012 AO

Azarenka * Kvitova * Zvonareva * Oudin * Zheng * Peer
Waiting for the next great non-headcase to emerge....

Zvonareva has pushed more often than not in recent years. Peer too.

Sharapova: Voskoboeva last year
Ivanovic: AO match against Dulko comes to mind

I think people don't realize that it's extremely hard to do anything but push against Kvitova if you're not someone like Li or Rezai.

Serena Wimbledon/USO 2007
The match that stands out in my mind is her wimbly match vs. Molik.

Ohh and I guess Wimbledon 2010 as well. But her serve was so flawless that the pushing made more sense.

Ana vs Safarova in Sydney is the most recent one that comes to mind. That was frustrating to watch.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.
