The term "pusher" has been tossed around a lot even discussing ATP players. Face it, we've all done so (said it or even practiced certain aspects of it playing) in some form. Some of the names thrown around include: Simon Hewitt Monfils Roddick Nadal Murray Robredo Ferrer Santoro Even aggressive players have been noted for their passive play on certain strokes: Federer's backhand slice returns even on soft 2nd serves, Gasquet's forehand, etc. This is not a bash thread. But a way to argue/discuss what defines the use of the term "pusher" when discussing ATP players.
