Serve and Volley Players

We all know that serve and volley players are becoming less and less common on the circuit these days. I think its sad that its dying out and wish they would speed up some of the courts especially those as Wimbledon. I was thinking about making a list of all active players who play this style. Maybe you guys can come up with some I have missed.

Tomas Berdych
Ivo Karlovic
Radek Stepanek
Jonas Bjorkman
Wesley Moodie
Robert Kendrick
Dick Norman
Max Mirnyi

Taylor Dent - hope he can come back soon and at least make it back to top 50.

John Isner - heard he is a serve volleyer but not seen him play so not sure.

Who else is there?

Re: Serve and Volley Players

Berdych?

No way man.

Zverev plays S&V when indoors.

Re: Serve and Volley Players

Berdych Only in doubles
...Chris Guccione,
Kiefer goes to the net often after 1st serve on fast surfaces, Mario Ancic, JF Tsonga, Mardy Fish as well

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Chiquita bananas ECC Antwerp

Re: Serve and Volley Players

Chris Guccione. Nice variation in serves and solid volleys. However, crappy groundstrokes. Is there a pure serve and volleyer with great groundstrokes?

Re: Serve and Volley Players

Why would someone play S&V having "great groundstrokes"?
