Beating a pusher can be a very, very tough ask for a rec player. This video shows you how you can use modern tennis footwork to attack this type of player and make beating a pusher a relatively simple affair.

A pusher is someone who gets everything back (often by moonballing) and wins when you start making mistakes. These errors typically happen when the rec player -- in an effort to attack the pusher -- starts to overhit.

By using modern tennis footwork -- specifically the walking and hopping steps -- you can add pace and weight to your shots without having to swing aggressively. This lets you attack yet still play a high-percentage game.

This video also introduces the concept of profiling -- evaluating your opponent's strengths and weaknesses and devising a plan of attack.
