what you should not do is swinging as hard as you can because you want to end it. that is what the pusher wants he doesn't care if you hit a few winners as long he is winning.
I have even heard of defensive players (not really low level pushers) that would intentionally feed "assists" for you to hit a winner and then compliment you to feed your ego and make you swing away more.
Sometimes I do that to him. I assist him a ball knowing that we will place it at a particular place in the court and I know I can pass him or hit behind him. It works.
When I draw him to the net however... most of the times he rushes back to the baseline
