I went to watch a team I am thinking of joining. It is a 3.5 adult league team. During warm ups I was watching and thinking I can hit with these guys easy. Then I watched my first pusher. Now I am scared. Before you say pushers are easy let me explain how this guy played. He was super consistent and playing the push off both sides. He is very athletic with a long reach and he's very fast. He doesn't push to the middle he pushes to the the deep corners waiting for an error. He can handle most pace and if he gets into drop he's very adept at resetting the point with a arcing lob a few feet from the baseline (he did this 10 times, missed once). So how do you face a guy who is: Never tries for winners unless the ball is in slam range. Really athletic Doesnt make mistakes Pushes the ball deep into the corners Can actually charge forward with topspin if you leave a ball short is a good vollyer and is really tall (good overheads).
