View Full Version : We can call them pushers, or something! :)

Looks like writers lose to the skilled percentage player too. Luckily they have an outlet...writing.

What do you do when you lose to someone you don't believe you should have lost to?

Good article. I just lost to a pusher last week. This article reinforces what I should have done.

good article although he makes it sound like pushers are almost magical in their abilities. What he is describing also is more of a counterpuncher + spinmaster/slice and dice player.

Ummmm...cry about it to TW posters?
Nice article you posted, I have no sympathy for crybabies clamoring for style points, either.
These whiners would have us believe they'd be at 4.0 or 4.5 instead of 3.5 if it wasn't for those dastardly pushers. I always wonder, what with the self-rating, why not rate one's self at 4.0 or 4.5 to avoid those pushers and see how good one "really" is?
My prediction: They really ARE 3.5 players.

Exactly CP.

His advice seems to say, "you need to play better."

Watch the ball and keep your head still. And don't try to crush the ball with every shot stupid! :)

I love reading turbo tennis

And...

"Pushers feed on frustration. They love it when they see you getting angry with yourself. In fact, apart from winning, pushers find this mental breakdown a most rewarding part of playing our sport."

This is so me...:twisted:

Yes, I enjoy mentally breaking down the power player myself and watching them fall apart and knowing the match is over already. It's sort of sad to see but it's a weakness they need to overcome to get to the next level and I am always searching for the easiest way to win the match.

Excellent article.

Pushers generally are counter punchers and spin masters. I guess a true pusher just blocks back every ball with little or no spin, but most pushers will slice alot and only hit hard if the opponent gives them the right pace to allow them to hit hard.
