Should also mention that the player also known as Wozniacki actually is "Pushniacki". If not, look at Urban Dictionary, they know it best! :spit:

It is an acknowledged style. There is nothing rude about it. If players do not want to be categorised as pushers, they should play more aggressively.

Caroline Wozniacki has been named a pusher by some and a counter-puncher by others.[citation needed]

:lol: You're joking right? You really think Nadal or even Murray are on the same level of pushing as Simon, Wozniacki or Monfils? Murray shouldn't be listed in the same vein as those three. There's a difference between having good defense which constantly comes into play and just pushing in every match 9 out of 10 times.

Having watch Simon/Tipsarevic and Simon/Murray, I just cannot put either Murray or Nadal on the same level.

Oh, and the article is hilarious, it could have done without the Professional Pushers section, I think that's just being mean.

This. I read the article a few months ago and didn't find anything wrong with it. What we need -- on TF, Wikipedia, and elsewhere -- is a clear distinction between "pusher" and "counterpuncher."

Agreed. The style has been around and acknowledged LONG before Woz'. Though I HATE that style and her game, the style itself shouldn't be said to be a joke. It works for some. :shrug:

I had posted that few years back when there was a debate here that the term was only popular here and was not part of serious tennins lingo.

Of course, that kind of thinking is now relegaded to history. as coaches ar now using as a motivational factor in a peptalk to players.

I should say when I first posted it, there was reference to Brad Gilbert, but not to Muarray an Caro, the last two were still busy building their credentials to make it up there.
Also, there was not picture of Brad, he was imply mentioned by name.

She and her friend and rival Victoria Azarenka made fun of each others' reputations in a humorous scene of a video, at a player party on Halloween during the 2009 WTA Tour Championships where Wozniacki defeated Azarenka. In the video, Azarenka calls Wozniacki a great pusher, and Wozniacki calls Azarenka a brainless ball-basher.

In the Urban Dictionary you can even look up the word 'pushniacki'. :)

With these pictures in wikipedia, Caro and Murray have to do everything to win GS.

They can let this image stand as their lasting legacy.

Brad's macho approach to coaching has erased some of that.

I think it's a shame that people call Andy Murray a pusher, I think it's being clueless about tennis. And some even say Nadal...

The new Woz 2.0 that's soon coming out is certainly not going to be a pusher, I've heard.

Yesterday I spent time fixing the main draw page of Wimbledon women's singles 2002, someone had intentionally put two Indonesian players, Wynne Prakusya and Angelique Widjaja in the fourth round, what a mess !! :(
