Re: "Brainless ball bashers" Really?
I agree with the OP about the term 'brainless ball basher'. Even more so the term 'pusher,and especially on the reason why.
That said,there are players ranked quite highly who's only offensive choice is to hit the ball as hard as they can. It's not 'brainless', because they generally pick a direction, but 'right','left', 'center' is as deep as the offensive thought process goes.
And if you succeed like Sharapova, what's wrong with that?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
