Annacone's Don'ts: 

1

Become a pusher yourself

2

Be passive

3

Over play

Annacone provided Daniil Medvedev as a player to try to emulate when going up against a pusher. The Russian knows when to take risks and play aggressive, but he never over plays.

Amritraj, on the other hand, threw it back to the 1996 US Open final between Pete Sampras and Michael Chang. Sampras attacked the middle of the court and stayed patient to successfully defend his title against the crafty counterpuncher.
