I think she´s going too much for her shots when this happens, and she becomes a brainless ballbasher by the instant.

Example: the 6-0 set she lost against Hingis in Melbourne 07, Miami 12 QF and many more

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

I don't agree with Li being like Clisjters, i mean Li can counterpunch at times but her natural game is to go for the winner immediately. why do you think she has such shit shows? When she is off her balls go into the stands. Clijsters will work the point alot more before delivering a blow.

No way. Sam, Sharapova, Serena, all definitely above her.

The big difference between Radwanska and defensive players of Errani or Wozniacki types lies in that Aga has quite effective Game B, C or D.
She may play aggresively if she wants , serve and volley and so on. And she is very good at the net.

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

Serena is just as aggressive as Li and Kvitova (if not more agressive). I am confused at why people are dropping her down the list just because she can actually defend unlike Li and Kvitova. Tennis is not a one way game. You have to play both offensively and defensively. You wouldn't 15 slams if you weren't the most aggressive player on tour.

The title of the thread says rate players from ball bashers to pusher yet the first post says from most aggressive to the most defensive. If my book they are two different things. Li and Kvitova are the biggest ball bashers but I still think Serena is the most aggressive player on tour.

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

They probably just read the title that just says BBB, they are probably rating Serena under them because she is agressive but has a brain and can control her aggression, unlike Kvitova and Li

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

1. Kvitova (no other game plan than ball bash)
2. Sharapova (will defend on the very odd occasion)
3. Serena (consistently hits the ball hard against most opponents, but can get into slower rallies and work the point)

4. Stosur
4. Li (both are aggresive and brainless at times, but generally play the point a bit slower)

6. Azarenka (consistently 80% paced ball)

7. Kerber
7. Errani (hits the ball if its there, generally on the defense)

9. Wozniacki
9. Radwanska (sometimes refuse to hit the ball hard and look for long slow rallies to play to their advantage)

sharapova ( content to hit big off both wings but not so well on the move; more consistent than Na, petra and serena)
stosur(only reason i put her here is because she hits the forehand very big, but i wouldn't call her a complete bbb)
azarenka(takes the ball early but prefers to use consistency rather than hit big)
kerber (uses power against bbb, counterpunches well and defends well)
errani(no real power at all uses slices and heavy topspin as well as defense.
wozniacki(relies the most on defensive skills to win matches but she can get some acceleration on her backhand)
radwanska (relies on defensive skills, dropshots, touch and guile; no power)
Agree with this.
Sharapova used to bash the ball like crazy but not anymore, I think that Sharapova from 04-08 would stand more chances against Serena and Vika on HC but Maria's aggression is really controlled these days, sometimes she just rallies too much and exposes her movement a lil more, which is working on clay but not on HC against the very best.
