Federer - pusher (ballbasher against Nadal)
Nadal - moonballer ( a highly specialized form of pusher)
Djokovic - anti-moonball pusher (becomes ballbasher when matchpoint(s) down)
Murray - pusher (ballbasher against Nadal)
Ferrer - pusher
Tsonga - ballbasher
Berdych - ballbasher
Del Potro - ballbasher
Almagro - ballbasher

What a gross simplification. :) When you put it that way, you suggest there are only two ways to send a ball across the net: hitting it hard (bashers) or not so hard (pushers).

i dont think 1-4 are pushers or ballbashers.

outside top 4 yes.

keeping the ball in play is high percentage.

Dunno if s & v counts as pusher or ballbasher.

Usually they bash an approach shot and then push a volley into the net. Or push some ball-kids over in frustration at being passed all the time.

So they're a bit of both.
That has got to be one of the worst attempts at trolling I have ever seen.

Everyone is not a pusher or a ballbasher. There is such a thing as controlled aggression. Shit thread.
