Federer can learn a lot from Rafa's volleying

(Notice how Federer stands upright to volley? Watching it today during the WAW match. It's a low percentage technique, he misses easy volleys due to a lack of technical skill. Has he always refused to get down low on volleys or is it a recent tendency? He needs to watch Rafa)

Hopefully you only kidding. Federer is the only guy right now who has volleys which are similar to real volleyers art. And useful too.

(You teach tennis players to stand upright to volley? For real? Ever wonder why he misses so many easy ones?)

Re: Federer can learn a lot from Rafa's volleying

federer used to play s&v quite often before they slowed down courts of all surfaces. he actually had to transition from playing s&v to playing more from the baseline for his wimbledon wins. he is one of the best volleyers on tour, if not the best. nadal has improved his volleying over the years, and if anything he probably learned a great deal from federer. yes he stands upright to volley sometimes but that's probably just him being lazy. and he mainly only misses easy ones when he cracks mentally while playing nadal, djokovic, etc. watch the highlights of his match against nadal in masters cup SF 2007, terrific display of federer's amazing volley skills. yes he is sometimes sloppy, but he has the most natural talent in that department currently

More like Bullshitzilla, as someone parodied the other day



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

The only think Olderer can learn from Nadal is moonballing.

Re: Federer can learn a lot from Rafa's volleying

Olderer's volleys are overrated. They are only average quality. Like McEnroe said, Nadal already surpassed him in that department.
