Yes, they do.

Chrissie the Barbie Doll won 18 slams, and thanks to that she pollutes my ears now with the most banal announcing possible.

So by definition you are therefore saying 99% of the tour are below mediocre ?

Chris Evert was not a Barbie doll and she certainly was not a pusher.

Chrissie was quite a babe in her young days indeed: But I wouldn't call her a pusher really relative to her era of net rushers. She just introduced modern baseline game to the women's game with her very consistent and precise groundstrokes. Actually, I still watch her matches sometimes to marvel at her passing shots against all the serve and volleyers of those days

Re: PUSHERS don´t WIN slams!!!!

There is a Youtube video of Chris playing against the likes of Court, Goolagong and Wade in her heyday and you can see how she played allcourt game by being aggressive and attacking the net a lot of the time.

It's harder to be a pusher with a wood racquet because you can't rely on your opponent hitting a lot of errors. If you hit it in the middle serve volleyers with wood will take the advantage and use it to approach the net.

You could do that and hit a great passing shot but that's not what a pusher is.

She makes the most with what she's got and does it a variety of ways.
LOL

If anything Aga can thank god she is not facing this kind of tennis nowadays. Hingis handled this with a beautyful style, touch and outsmarting when possible.

I'm not bothered in the slightlest by Azarenka's accomplishments or the h2h between her and Aga. I would rather choose to be the fan of a player that won't even win a slam if she possesses enough integrity to show herself the same on and off court just like Aga always does than to be the fan of your fave.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Why did you have to mention that name here when it's totally irrelevant.

How random, and untrue. Everything you just said has absolutely nothing to do with what I said earlier. The only thing you just did is back up the fact that you're sour just like your fave. Keep it up.
