What am I...
 
So, I played an inferior player and used pushing as my only strategy. I pushed on every ball.
After he loses double bagels, he calls me a "pusher".
I am outraged and demand a recount!

You sir, are a winner.

Welcome to the club; we may be pushers but we are winning pushers!

You should have just fought him after the match.

TheCheese 12-07-2012 10:49 PM

You should settle it in a tennis match.

You are Gonzolitto17

You are the player so many posters here are complaining about. You must be a busy guy.

It's like the riddle of the sphinx... if you answer it correctly, you get to be king of talk tennis

A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma cloaking someone with too much time on their hands.

LeeD 12-08-2012 01:00 PM

Yes, I have too much time on my hands.
I recently retired, but am currently renovating g/f's house. But the process takes lots of waiting time, like when you apply mud to the drywall, there is a 1.5 hour wait before scraping and sanding, pinhole filling, and priming. And the house is packed with parts, tools, and living stuff, so it's one wall at a time max, moving stuff around for each side of each wall.
Guess where I sit in front of during the wait times?

Countless philosophers have debated about the thread title

Coach Chad 12-09-2012 02:26 PM

Do you use this strategy often?

anubis 12-10-2012 05:54 AM

Playing devil's advocate here.

When I read the book "winning ugly" by Brad Gilbert, I remember that he often discusses how you should find a weakness in an opponent and just punish that weakness. More specifically, he talks about going beyond someone's comfort level in a rally.

If your opponent is a monster between 2 and 5 shots, but becomes more uncomfortable and prone to errors at the 6 to 10 shot range, then your best bet is to keep the rally going for longer than 6 shots.

isn't that what a pusher basically does? A pusher sort of assumes that all of his or her opponents have trouble with really long rallies, so they keep the rally going as long as possible. And this usually wins.

Whether you're hitting moon balls, FH slices, or 65 mph TS-laden shots, you're still pushing if you're simply trying to keep the ball in play for as long as possible until your opponent makes an error, knowing that your opponent gets uncomfortable beyond a 6 shot rally.

Gonzo is the sweatest player to ever pick up a racket. He beats teaching pro's in 21 with ease and is 25000-0 in games lifetime. If fact he has only lost 7 points in those 25,000 games.

You should have played left handed if you wanted a challenge...
