Serve and volley players

Just summing up, who plays serve&volley nowadays? I would include Taylor Dent, Rajeev Ram, Ivan Navarro, Nicolas Mahut, Radek Stepanek (most of the time). Who else?

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Yeah - he can be interesting to watch when his game is on. He'll often try mix it up to ridiculous degrees - long slice, moonball, short slice, push to the corner, power to the other corner, moonball, net charge, retreat, knifed slice ....... and that's just one point. Really good accurate serve when it's working, but he's a bit stuffed when it's not.
