John

You must have some serious potential to be ranked so high.  Keep working hard and continue on up the ladder.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

yo im 14 and have the same problem i hate pushers too im now in the semi finals of a tournament and i suggest the best thing you can do before a tournament is get out on court and play all your weak shots until they get better, dont practise your strong ones cause whats that going to do. You need to work on playing different types of players. Read my journal for more info on mi game and what I do to finish off pushers.

I used to have a problem w/ pushers, but I've found a way to overcome them. When you play a pusher, they generally hit the ball with very little speed and/or pacing. So the best way to look at it is like you are in a match with a hard hitter and they just mis-hit... all the time, so u just pound that mofo. Stay on your toes and don't get lazy or flat-footed just b/c u don't have to move as fast. It's all mental....

they're the players that don't really have a strategy, they just hit the ball high w/ relatively no spin at all... and the ball lands deep. Players usually lose to them due to frustration. They start to get excited overhit, causing errors left and right. You never really lose to a pusher b/c of their winners.

They indeed do everything they can to just get the ball back in the court.  They barely ever hit a hard shot and are more than content to just hit it back down the middle.  The faster they are the more frustrating it is because they get everything back.  I think at the 4.0+ level you should be able to handle the vast majority of pushers pretty easily.  There are few in the 4.5+ range.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

well i dont think i ever come across a pushe that is more than a 3.5 level due to them just not having good enough range of shots because in the LTA tournaments player 8.2 and above really can not push any futher if they wish to improve beyond that level. (the level plenty on juniors get stuck at why because you can not push the ball back no longer at that level)

Yeah but I think pushers now will never get any better becasue it doesnt work in the 16s or 18s when gthey get stronger and your shot gets stronger...
