    Pushers(DelPo, Ferrer) beating the flashy all-courters(Federer, Dolgopolov) on fast indoor surfaces.

    This is not tennis!

    First of all, Delpo is anything but a pusher. Second of all, Basel is not a fast court. Basel is medium paced with a somewhat lower bounce. Just because its indoors doesn't make it fast.

    I can't comment on Valencia since I've never been there.

    Well I needed to rant. Of course DelPo isn't a pusher, but dammit I can't abide Fed losing in Basel to anyone! Nadal has never lost Barcelona!

    Both are 500 titles, who really cares? Nadal is nearly unbeatable on clay and you don't generally get that many great player in Barca anyway. Fed got great records, I din't care if he doesn't win basel every year..

    oh well. Just think you need to keep things in perspective.

    Federer lost in 2009 Basel final vs Djokovic, DelPO isn't a pusher and Ferru won Valencia 3 times i think! So, this thread is stupid!

    lol, basically everyone who isn't Federer gets called a pusher these days. It should be called pushing and not tennis if what we read on TT is true

    Nobody should be surprised Delpo won today. I'm not even close to any form of sadness that he lost. He's losing the #1 anyway, and it was quite obvious he needs a rest which is why he pulled out of Paris. Full credit to Delpo though.

    He's lost 8 times total in Basel counting today, and he's now lost 4 finals. Today, 2009 vs Djokovic, 2001 vs Henman, and 2000 vs Thomas Enqvist.

    Del Potro isn't a pusher, he actually has weapons.

    c.) anyone who is not federer.

    ******* would be *******s. To say that Delpo is a pusher because you don't like that your playar got beaten is plain silly.

    Delpo a pusher. OMG, that term has "jumped the shark" beyond comprehension. What don't you just come out and say it, When will Raonic stop dinking his first serve?"

    He is not a Roger fan. The point he is making is simple. Roger lost in Basel, Rafa never lost in Barcelona. It's true also

    Unfortunately for him NSK and his multiple id's couldn't take that bait :)

    OP is not a ******* by any stretch of imagination, quite the opposite actually (there isn't a poster on this forum who hates Fed more, well maybe SoBad), he's just trolling and as Feather said, making a point about Nadal never losing in Barcelona.

    Given how ancient Fed is and how uninspired, flat and sloppy his tennis has been lately, I rather doubt that.

    Just remember, what goes around comes around (Rafa won't be young forever :)).

    You have misclassified a couple of players, except that it's true that Ferrer is a pusher (unless he's playing against Nadal - that's when he pulls out his weapons) and Dolgopolov is a brilliant all-court player. DelPo is more of a hacker than a pusher, and Frederer is similar style.
