This is not a thread against Wozniacki or someone else, but it's only to know which players are the pushers of WTA.
Wozniacki with no doubt, even if she's trying to improve her game.
Radwanska? Medina? Express your opinion guys :angel:

Shoulderpova, classic case of pushing the ball into the net, or 10 feet over the baseline. :shrug:

Wozniacki until 2009 was a typical pusher.
Radwanska from time to time.
Dulgheru until spring 2010.
Schnyder can be a pusher when the surface does not suits her game

And there are players which are forced to play like a pusher because they don't have good enough shots against top players so they "push" only against better opponents

There are a lot more between 50 and 150.

Wozniacki, reinforced a couple of days ago against Cibulkova. Major, epic, tantalizingly delicious, unimaginative, boring, complete and utter pushing.

Her match against Watson was hardly an exhibition of power tennis, either.

God, this thread has made me remember Anna Smashnova. :yawn: Now there was one boring player.

Probably some of the most extreme pushing I've ever seen.

The point at 8:21 is some of the most extreme pushing I have ever seen from Sveta.

Radwanska can push from time to time but she's quite smart and can move her opponent around.
Wozniacki is also improving although she'll always have the tendency to rely on her defense than an aggressive game.

As for the 8:21 point, why is Kirilenko starting the game sounding like Octo-Mom giving birth only to stop in the middle of the rally. Weird.

I'm really sick of the word pusher.
As soon as somebody play defense, or not scream when hitting the ball,
she's a PUSHER!
Everyone is a pusher in certain points.
Noone is a pusher all the time.
Not a single player comes to my mind.

The word 'pusher' mostly says more about the person using it than it says about the player it is used on.
