Pushers are typically very fast…sometimes so fast that you have to use their speed against them. In today’s video Brady demonstrates a play that utilizes hitting “behind” a pusher.

    Thanks for your hard work we all are improving from. I am now playing with a 95 sq.inch Slazenger Tim Henman model. I´m thinking of buying the Prince Tour 95 Texstreem, do you think that is the nearest in comprising, or do you think other Prince models are better for me, now turning 53 next month? I think I like headlight, and open string ones.
    Regards,

    Great instruction, Brady! One of my opponents is technically NOT a pusher, but he has really ugly but effective strokes, and is consistent. He holds the racquet with 2 hands in a vertical position, which allows him just turn it slightly to aim anywhere on the court laterally. He is able to chop down on the ball to create a low ball that’s fast and stays low, and he gets to my shots fast. The only thing that seems to work against him is deep shots that keep him back, but the pressure he imposes cause me to commit unforced errors. I respect his talent but could use some advice. Thanks.

      Hitting with depth is good as you stated. Getting to the net generally works well against players that tend to slice a lot since slice is not effective as a passing shot. Have you tried approaching the net much against him?

    Many Thx for the great tips. I have been concentrating on the top 5 serves. I have been going at 3/4 speed while I get the serves under control. But even at 3/4 speed the mixing up of the serves is really effective.

      Happy to hear that your serves are improving. Having variety and being able to place them is more important than speed. Federer doesn’t hit nearly the hardest serve but it’s one of the best of all-time.
