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

In other words, rank the players from the most aggressive to the most defensive.

Here's the current top 10 for those who already forgot:

1. Azarenka
2. Sharapova
3. S. Williams
4. A. Radwanska
5. Kerber
6. Errani
7. Li Na
8. Kvitova
9. Stosur
10. Wozniacki

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

1. Kvitova
2. Li
3. Azarenka
4. Stosur
5. Sharapova
6. Serena (Serena is the most powerful ballbasher of them all, the thing is, she doesn't miss, that's why she's so good )
7. Kerber
8. Wozniacki
9. Radwanska
10. Errani

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Do terms defensive player and pusher really mean the same?

Discussing that would probably be worth a thread on its own but I think it's clear what it meant.

1. Kvitova
2. Li

Those two play like they've never heard of controlled aggression, I understand Petra's reason to do it, but I don't understand Li at all.


3. Sharapova
4. Serena (she blows them all off the court without playing her most aggressive tennis)
5. Azarenka
6. Stosur
7. Kerber
8. Errani
9. Radwanska
10. Woz

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

Sam is more aggressive than Serena and Maria?

1. Kvitty (Kvitty and Na are as brainless as each other but Kvitty hits much bigger and much flatter)
2. Na

3. Rena (uses first strike tennis more often than Masha, but more content to rally than Kvitty and Na)
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

By the way, Errani is capable of attacking properly when she gets a short ball, she likes coming forward too, she's going for her shots whenever she can. I have no idea why she's #10 on most of the lists here.

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

1. Kvitova
2. Stosur
3. Sharapova
4. Li (she can be brainless, but she's not really a ballbasher when she's on her game)
5. Serena (she's a ballbasher, but not brainless)
6. Azarenka
7. Kerber
8. Radwanska
9. Errani
10. Wozniacki

The last 3 are basically interchangeable.
