Re: Are you glad that Serve & Volley is pretty much extinct now?
There's a difference between 'all-serve' guys and S/V players. Henman and Rafter are good examples, they had good serves but what made them so exciting was their approach play and amazing reactions up at the net. Guys like philippoussis, Goran etc were less exciting but those kind of guys are still around today, Isner the best example.
When people say they miss S/V they don't want it to dominate or anything, they just want a more even field where you can see different styles of tennis clashing. Thats the real beauty of the sport. I'd compare it to boxing with an Ali/Frasier etc. Imagine how awesome watching Nadal at his height against Edberg on an oldschool Wimbledon surface would've been.
I love all aspects of TENNIS.
Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V
