I'll start
Zvonareva: vs Ivanovic 2009 IW
Safina: vs Kvitova USO 2009
Peer: anytime she faces Venus
Oudin: her USO 2009 run pushing 3 Russians to their deaths
Azarenka: her last 3 matches against Kvitova
Kvitova: tried to push (or put on the brakes), but failed vs Sharapova 2012 AO

Zvonareva has pushed more often than not in recent years. Peer too.

Sharapova: Voskoboeva last year :facepalm:
Ivanovic: AO match against Dulko comes to mind

I think people don't realize that it's extremely hard to do anything but push against Kvitova if you're not someone like Li or Rezai. :shrug:

Serena Wimbledon/USO 2007
The match that stands out in my mind is her wimbly match vs. Molik.

Ohh and I guess Wimbledon 2010 as well. But her serve was so flawless that the pushing made more sense.

Ana vs Safarova in Sydney is the most recent one that comes to mind. That was frustrating to watch.

I think, on the whole, that my favourite players are those that would be called 'pushers'


What is the point of supporting someone that hits the ball out all the time?

:happy: lol at you. Peer plays like a pusher everytime she faces a decent opponent (read top 50). :happy:

Kvitova-dushevina Ao 2012. She just pushed the ball over the net, and vera hit it out.
Stosur and li-can't really remember.
Kuznetsova-every match for the past year:sobbing:
kanepi-never.
hradecka-never ever ever in a million years.

Venus at 2002 Amelia Island final against Justine... It's the first time I saw her play moonballs

Sharapova against Zakopalova at Wimbledon last years comes first to my mind.

As well as her match against Voskoboeva :yeah:.
