Class 'A' pusher?

I highly doubt a top 15 player is a pusher to be honest, although did we ever find out where Puerta got his gear from?

Intresting.

Re: Murray...A Grade "A" Pusher?

If he always played the way he did against Haas then yes, he would be a very good pisher but it's not the case. He has a very adaptable game and there are many dimensions which he can call upon to beat different opponents.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

No, he is a really good player who 'pushes' sometimes against players who don't have the patience or creativity to deal with it, and he wins. Why try to hit 80 winners when you don't have to?

Re: Murray...A Grade "A" Pusher?

Nope, he's a defensive counterpuncher who has brilliant ability to get the ball back in play one more time than most people can. Not many 'pushers' can play superb passing shots on the run on both wings.

He can play aggressive when he wants to - when his movement was restricted last night, he was playing much more aggressive tennis to end the points earlier, and reduce the amount of long rallies.

My favourites


Andy Murray / Fernando Gonzalez / Mikhail Youzhny / Simone Bolleli / Kei Nishikori / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

He is a counter-puncher mixed with some tactics.

Yes, he's a pusher that happens to win a hell of a lot more matches than he loses. Just like the pushers at most junior events and local clubs.

If you don't have a clue about tennis, why do you people bother posting on a tennis forum?

I expect the slash brigade to take over this thread.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Murray...A Grade "A" Pusher?

I saw the match last night and was shocked. I actually thought this guy could play a little
Murray really SUCKS!

NO SERVE
NO GAME

I could return his second serve he never made any first serves

How did Haas lose?

No future for this loser.

Re: Murray...A Grade "A" Pusher?

i dont think hes a pusher at all. he has many dimensions to his game. yes, he hits slices and loopers, but he can also give the ball a good whack. and no serve? he can hit serves nicely into the 130 range. he takes his chances when they are presented. like someone said before, why hit more winners than you should to win a match.
