Defensive/Pushers/Passive players in the top 20:
Azarenka
Radwanska
Kerber
Errani
Wozniacki
Stephens
Vinci (IMO she's more all-court)

That's only 7 there out of the top 20 the way I see it.
I'd say Azarenka is a bit of a stretch for this list... while she may not be as straightforwardly aggressive as someone like Sharapova or Williams she is definitely able to dictate play just as well with her shot consistency, angles, and her ability to play defense AND offense (plus she hits the ball pretty hard--a tier below Maria/Serena/Lisicki/etc but also a tier above Woz/Radwanska/Errani when it comes to power).

She's extremely fit but has no womanly attributes--flat chest, no curves. Her body is reminiscent of a prepubescent boy. That said, she has a lovely face.
