There are countless videos, articles, and threads about how to beat a pusher. The pusher is usually characterized as a player who has technically incorrect strokes and floats everything back. They are not capable of attacking a ball or hitting a passing shot. This isn't the type of player most people are encountering, in my opinion. I think most of us are dealing with the types of players I struggle with and consider pushers, and they're much more problematic. -They don't have big strokes, but they can hit the ball fairly deep and rarely make an error. -They are great on the stretch which makes it difficult to force errors. -If you come to the net off of a not-so-great approach, they have enough accuracy and feel to hit a good lob or make you hit a tough volley. -They're not going to rip short balls for winners, but they won't make silly mistakes off of them. These players force you to hit high quality shots. Beating them is not as simple as the standard "Work your way in and finish off the point with an easy volley" advice.
