on the other side he always get troubled against aggressive players like Djokovic, Nishikori, Delpotro, Soderling ,... even Ferrer who has lost a lot of battles most of time plays competitive match, Wawrinka attacking tennis finally getting paid off,

but pushers, they are clueless from the very beggining of the match:

Monaco - didn't won a set more than 3500 days

Gasquet - din't won a match more than 4000 days, didn't won a set more than 2000 days

Robredo - only once won a set in last 4000 days

Dimitrov - he was able more to threaten Nadal as 18y old kid when he was playing much more aggressive tennis than nowdays when he become pusher. 2000 days without win.

Murray - the smartest pusher of the all, because he can play aggressively now and then - he get trouble Nadal at Rome with that tactics but when he returned to the basics to his pusher mode, he lost very last hope for the win. On the natural surfaces(grass and clay) he has no more than 1% to win with his pusher tactics and never won over Nadal.

Federer - servebot pusher, after he realizes that his serbot tactics will inevitable fail in the first few games, he starts pushing with slices to guy who plays top spin and has average shots 1 meter over net. Just how clueless you must be. Proudly bending over at Slams since 2007(last 3000 day).


Sad story about pushers but someone has to tell you about :sad:

Bald is the ultimate pusher and will always be superior over worse versions of himself.

because dullito is an aggresive pusher, the evolved version of regular pushers where Mandy is their king.

His forehand is too good: it doesn't miss and is extremely accurate. He can create pace out of nothing without his absurd racquet head speed. He can just totally dictate play against a passive player without any risk of making errors.

Nobody can outpush Nadal. Besides, his FH is much better than any of their weapons. So they are pretty much hopeless against Nadal.

Federer is obviously not a pusher, but that's actually a fair point. He is pretty deadly for pushers just because they can't hurt him. You beat Nadal by running him around, rushing him, and hitting flat and early- none of which are things pushers excel at. They can only rally with him, which he is more than content to do and then if they drop a shot short, attack with the forehand.

It was certainly plain to see that Dimitrov's new defensive game makes Nadal a terrible match up for him. I think that game is going to hurt Dimitrov period though. Turning someone with that amount of natural shotmaking ability into a defensive player will help him in the short term- maybe to reach the top 10 even- but prevent him from ever contending for big titles. Wish he'd fire Rasheed who seems to have this effect on every player- good in the short term, bad in the long.

Rasheed is gone by September if no 1000 or > is won. He will have played his role though, so it's all good.

Because he makes like no errors. Even his total mishits bounce off passing birds and drop in somehow. Flukey to the extreme.

Nadal will outpush everybody.

You must blow Nadal off the court Rosol-style.

Because (when playing well) he only pushes on one wing. As soon as he gets an opening on the FH he goes for it.
