Re: Checkout Pete & Roger volleying movement

very true

in fact federer had more potential than pete (who was very much a SERVER in the serve and volley ability)

Rafter for example had better volleys than both guys-

federer (had he not abandoned the volley because of sand paper courts) could have been as good as edberg with the volley





the term textbook is usually throttled out - but in the case of federer its very much on point
he is textbook perfection in all shots- and in the case of his legendary forehand- he rewrote the textbook

(i try not to gush but he's just so damn good)

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Sampras volleys were always overrated. An eight year old girl using a toy tennis racquet could successfully put away volleys after Sampras serve

Re: Checkout Pete & Roger volleying movement

hey, Doc- slight exaggeration but i (sorta) agree with what you're saying about pete's volley's being overrated

(theres a rule against porn on this site, but i couldn't resist- enjoy)

Re: Checkout Pete & Roger volleying movement

I've always thought the Federer forehand volley was suspect.

Re: Checkout Pete & Roger volleying movement

Most players have a better backhand volley because the blocking motion is more natural. On the forehand there is always the temptation to swing too much.
