    We are called many things. Walls, retrievers, pushers, even moonballers. But we know what we are. Counterpunchers: the epitome of speed, endurance, and consistency. Join the cause. Nadal, Chang, Borg, Hewitt, and Coria would want you to continue their legacy and get to know other counterpunchers through using this thread.

    Aye! Nothing's more satisfying than beating 6 ft 4 guys that try to beat the fuzz off the ball. Represent!

    the definition of the counterpuncher, got this from another post here:

    Counter Punching players are always looking for the opportunity to *instantly* switch from safe defensive tennis ... to ripping winners. They can “change gears” with a single shot. Their passing shots are “thread the needle” accurate against those playing Attack the Net. Their drop-shots and lobs are deadly. Counter Punchers can detect and exploit the baseliners’ inadvertent openings ... and end the point with one “high risk” down-the-line winner ... or fool you with a short-angle inside-out forehand winner.

    You left off the hallmark of counterpunching (from a stroke standpoint): passing shot masters.
