I'll pass this on because I've never seen such a display of pure unadulterated pushing. My daughter's HS tennis team played a match last week. Their #2 singles player was a pusher. She hit high loopy balls that landed mid court about a foot behind the service line just about every time. The balls had enough height to them that our # 2 singles player (who is a very good player BTW) had to take them right at the baseline or sligghtly behind. The pusher had a very strong and hard serve. Her weakness was her backhand. She would push pretty consistently but her FH was good enough that if she got a short easy ball she had the skill to put it away. She lacked this ability from the BH side. She was exceptionally good at overheads and volleys. She didn't come in often but when she did she usually hit a good shot. I watched painfully as these players sustained rallies of 15 balls or more. In the end, our player won. She was incredible and we were so proud of her.She was so patient. Consistently hitting ball after ball working the pusher left to right just waiting for her to push one back short. Then she would pounce and hit a solid inside out FH wide to the pushers BH. In the end it was succesful. Our player had severe cramps in her legs following the match. She said it was the hardest match she ever played and I know that she has played some very good players. The match took 3 1/2 hours to play. a full 45 minutes after the last of the other matches were completed. My daughter who is not nearly as skilled watched the second half of the match and as we watched criticized our #2 for not winning decisively against the pusher. I immediately corrected her and told her that I didn't think there was anyone else on the team (including the #1) that I thought could beate this girl. The pusher chased down every ball and pushed it back no matter what. She hardly ever missed. Later in the week, I challenged my daughter to a short match and told her I was going to play the pusher. I pushed and my daughter learned a valuable lesson. She must have hit an unforced error within the first 5 balls of each point. I told her that consistency and patience was important. She had to learn when to pounce on the right ball. She is learning.
