Out of the three, I think it is quite obvious Federer has the best combination of good hands and technique. Between Tsonga and Hewitt, it is a tough call. Hewitt has solid volleys and it is good enough most of the time. Tsonga has a great backhand volley and great touch, however, his forehand volley has caused him a lot of headaches in the past.
I'll still go with Federer >> Tsonga > Hewitt
Have to agree on the whole, with the note that it may not be 'fair' to judge between Hewitt and Tsonga at this moment of time, as Hewitt is obviously past his best, whereas Tsonga is obviously at his best nowadays... let's just say that I was in awe at his miraculous volleys in the past couple of tournaments he played, and if he keeps up that level, he might well be capable of having me
more often than Hewitt ever did.
Federer can net 30 volleys a match and still look too technically sexy doing so to not be the best out of these three.
- well at least Fed still tries at all, despite the massive number of
attempts at times.
