How to play Pusher’s High Slow Balls

Unless you are also a pusher, and feel that you are a better one, it’s best to not try and measure forces with him/her in their kind of slow steady safe playing style. Best is to be on a “good day”, focused, concentrate big time, and try to impose yourself playing controlled-aggressive moving opponent around the best you can, to open up some court space for winners, “or/and”, you can go to the net and force your opponent to have to try a winning passing shot, but that only works if you can volley well, and mostly if you have a really reliable overhead smash, because we can’t forget that pushers lob so much whenever they are pressured by approach shots. I also coach players to learn a drop shot and have that in their arsenal, so that you can instead of trying to neutralize their opponents pushing ways, take them out of their game, by “making them” hit different shots than their favorite ones, and with a drop shot you can bring the pusher to the net and force them to volley, which they won’t like much at all, hehe!
