That's not necessarily true. A lot of players who hit hard, hit fine when facing pace of an equal level, but it's when they have to create their own pace they run into issues. This is why pushers win against these players. They stay consistent and throw off big hitters' rhythm by mixing up spins and pace. Trying to outhit or outpush a pusher usually just results in a loss. Players don't lose to pushers because their games aren't threatening. That's far from the correct answer. They lose because they aren't consistent enough to endure the long rallies with a pusher or lack the net game to serve and volley.
