4. Masha




5. Sam (uses defensive slices too much to be considered anywhere near as aggressive as Rena/Maria)
6. Vika


7. Kerber


8. Errani (utilizes the net very often compared to Wozniacki)
9. Woz
10. Aga (she was on the defensive more often than not vs. Errani and Wozniacki)

that said I prefer watching Aga more than Errani/Woz
Agreed with this.

Has been there any player who was more aggressive than Kvitova in the top 10 before? Maybe only Pierce but she was as aggressive as Petra not more I think.

Navratilova and Novotna arguably were more aggressive.

Re: Rank the top 10 players from "BBB" to "pusher"

I do think the difference between aggressive play and bashing is key.

Petra is an aggressive player and tries to finish points quickly. But she mixes up her shots a lot, hitting plenty of slices and net play (like drop volleys).

Maria is far less likely to mix up her play (rarely slices for example), and tends to wear her opponent down with consistent power - much more 'bash bash bash' style (but usually controlled, only sometimes brainless).

I'd put Maria & Li as top bashers, but Petra is more aggressive cos of her tendency to come forward more often. All of them can hit bucketloads of errors (brainless style) when off-form - but all can rein the errors right in when on-form.

Re: Rank the top 10 players from "BBB" to "pusher"

Bash or push - whatever it takes to win. It's not figure skating where you are judged by style.

Anyway, this is my list:
1. Kvitova - a force with no brain. Close your eyes and hit as hard as possible. Sometimes it will make the court.
2. Sharapova - a smaller version of Azarenka - less force and less brain. However, much bigger spirit and persistence.
3. Azarenka - a smaller force than Kvitova's, but with some brain.

Bottom of the list:
8. Radwanska - no force, but excellent brain and defense. Master of smart attacks.
9. Errani - typical Italian catenaccio.
10. Wozniacka - no attacking skills at all, no brain, just push the ball over. Run down your opponent.

The problem with ball bashers is their self-confidence. To hit the ball hard with accuracy requires a lot of confidence. And that is not always present. Unless your name is Serena...
