Can a "pusher" still win a grand slam?

watching Giles Simon play for the first time today,i have to ask,can someone with his type of game actually win one of the grand slams. Lleyton Hewitt last did it at Wimbledon in '02. I think the best chances are David Ferrer at the French and Andy Murray at Wimbledon.

What exactly does it mean? Cos Murray hits a fair amount of off-pace shots and junkballs, and Ferrer tends to whack the ball as hard as he can.

On the WTA , Radwanska does have a huge chance.

Re: Can a "pusher" still win a grand slam?

Murray is a pusher and I'd say that his chances of winning a slam are quite decent given this essential fact.

I think the same, with the quality of the "Big Three", there is no way a pusher can win a Grand Slam.

Ferrer RG with Nadal, Djoko and Roger there!?!? no way.

Murray Wimbli whit Nadal, Djoko and Roger there!?!? no way.

I repeat: Murray is a pusher and will be winning slams in no time.
