    Pushers are not easy to play against.

    LOL, Oscar! Too funny.

    I'll try harder next time. :)

    BTW, match was incomplete. We stopped playing after I went up 2-0 in the second set. However, I couldn't go on. Too tired/exhausted/depleted. he made me run like a mad-mad. :evil:

    I'll see you tomorrow, if I'm able to get my membership extended.

    I don't think "pusher" defines this guy. Maybe "super-pusher/drop- shotter extraordinaire". :)

    Oh, I was tired when I got off that court. I ran about 10 miles, the guy about 1/2 a mile. LOL

    You just have to admit that Pushers are good players too. Just cause their games aren't pretty, doesn't mean they are not good athletes. Santoro had respect from his fellow players throughout his career. they all knew he pushed the ball but he was better athlete than most.

    ^^I agree. I said that in a thread in the tennis tips section a few days ago. This guy is a comuter rated 4.0. Has the ugliest strokes one could imagine, but he gets everything back, and hits sick angled drop shots.

    Oh well, live and learn.

    true story:

    I once played with this pusher and his last name was pong, just like Roddick's opponent in the tv commercial :)
