Post Servebots or Pushers? which type of player is more tolerable

If you were forced to pick 1 of these 2 matches to watch would it be:


Karlovic vs Isner in Halle
or
Monfils vs Simon in Monte Carlo




Would any of you watch them willingly?

Re: Servebots or Pushers? which type of player is more tolerable

Pushers probably, at least guaranteed a few good rallies and some interesting tactics during some points. Servebots without any groundgame are tedious to watch

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."


FEDERER - MURRAY - DEL POTRO - DIMITROV - GASQUET - WAWRINKA - TSONGA - HEWITT - FOGNINI - HAAS - KOHLSCHREIBER - NALBANDIAN

But you would also have to deal with plenty of this

Re: Servebots or Pushers? which type of player is more tolerable

I'd take pushers every day. But as with all these discussions (playing styles, court surfaces, court speeds) what we should be getting as fans is variety and not one style/court surface/speed being utterly dominant.

Well you are quite biased considering you're a Djokovic fan.

I never thought that I was going to say this but I prefer pushers.

If I remember correctly you said you prefer pushers. You must have built tolerance to pushing assuming you watch a lot of Djokovic matches.
tl;dr Djokovic is the biggest push on tour.

Murray couldn't put anything away because of a combination of the wind, the slow courts, and the impeccable defense of David Ferrer.

not really, because with proper grass courts, players have to follow the serve to the net...
