Hell to the yeah.....tennis without pushers would be boring
Sure jan gif. If you are on drugs,I guess it is truth.

Title should be,pushers do vulture slam(disgusting luck).these two would never win it if they werent playing each other.

They are labelled as pusher.
But against other pushers, they play their games differently.

eg Help vs Woz, WTF RR.
If you have been watching Woz in that WTF, you would see that she was the one moving Venus around.

I can understand Wozniacki, maybe. She is more aggressive these days, but she used to be ridiculously passive in the past. I remember last year's Australian Open where Konta absolutely blew her off the court. Was embarrassing to watch.
Never understood people who call Halep a "pusher". She doesn't have huge weapons, partly due to her size, but she plays with steady controlled aggression. A bit like a Djokovic.

What a troll! Kerber transformed into a pusher, but the biggest pusher is Wozniacki. Halep is an aggressor, sometimes an offensive counterpuncher. She could be aggressive all the time though in order to become like Kim C. or maybe she's more aggressive than the Belgian sometimes but Kim knew to be smart, when to pull the trigger and to play long all the time.

Halep had 50 winners. Kerber 33.

But is being pusher a bad thing? It's great for the sport to not bash everything like Ohanian!
Ohanian has 23 slams and 4 Gold medals which is 23 slams and 4 gold medal than Aga will ever have :grin2: Btw do you honestly think Ohanian could have achieved all of that by simply bashing the ball?

What's the definition of a pusher? In today's SFs,

Halep: 50 winners in 35 games, 1.43 winners per game, 43% of the points she won + 28% from forced errors = 71% of her points decided on her own initiative

Wozniacki: 25 winners in 22 games, 1.14 winners per game, 32% of the points she won + 25% from forced errors = 57% of her points decided on her own initiative
