A pusher loves one thing more than anything else: time. If you give a pusher plenty of time to chase down a ball, they ultimately will. In today lesson, Brady discusses how to effectively take time away from a pusher without racking up unforced errors.

    The ultra-dreaded pusher, which would be great if you could address this, Brady, is the speedy pusher who runs down everything.

    Hi Brady,
    Do you have any tips on the technique for taking a ball on the rise at shoulder height – particularly on the backhand (or do you prefer to run around your backhand).

    DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE HOW TO HANDLE DEEP HARD HITTING PUSHERS WHO GENERALLY REVERT TO HIGH MOONSHOTS AFTER SHORT RALLY. YOUR CURRENT VIDEOS ON PUSHERS ARE VERY IMPRESSIVE. Can your lessons on pushers also be practiced by 10-year old junior players where pushing is wide spread.

      Thanks John! “Moonshots” are best taken on the rise or very often with a swing volley. This can be tough for a 10-year-old initially but as they progress and get older (and bigger) this becomes much more manageable. Unfortunately pushers reign supreme in the early years of juniors but they tend to be beaten rather easily after the 12’s.

      Or threaten them with a year on Moonball Island. That’ll do it ! Whats Moonball Island? It’s an island in the middle of the Pacific, one court, where all Moonballers are sent to play amongst themselves in endless, sky high rallies. Yes, I have had too many baaaaad experiences trying to play all the tennis against these types of people.
