Go to 3:30 to 4:05. She's not a pusher. Pushers don't go for winners. They rely entirely upon their opponent missing.

Anyway, she has no loop because she needs no loop to mentally help her track the ball and coordinate that physically. I know you may think she's letting her racquet do all the work but take it from someone who uses a 381 gram racquet, she's not.
