Do you not get it? Serve and volleyers do not win major titles nowadays. If you're a baseliner who uses serve and volley to mix everything up then it works. If you're prominently a serve and volleyer like Sampras or Llodra then you won't win majors. Simple as that.

Did Federer use only serve and volley like Sampras would? No, he didn't. He was mostly on the baseline, as he usually is nowadays. He used serve and volley every now and then to mix things up, like he usually does. He did not use serve and volley like Sampras does.


SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 592-171...
TITLES: 38 and counting...
