Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

I think Federer has hands and volleying variety that easily equals Llodra's at net, but he doesn't cover the net or anticipate quite as well (the flip side is he has a better serve). Those two definitely have the best overall volleying ability on tour, at least in the singles game.

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

His anticipation ability and hands are better than his actual volleying skills............to answer the question, yes, he has the best volley on tour, as he uses his volley as a weapon more than any other player and does so effectively for the most part.

Yes he is. Llodra has it all, athleticism, reflexes, touch, angle, spin....Of course his game is just dancing around at the net and hitting wild shots.

I think Granollers also has surprisingly a great volley. A pity half is game is ugly grinding.

Watching the match now.

Holy shit...his volleying is like Raonic's serve: unbelievable, reliable, and seemingly effortless.

llodra all the way.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

Llodra's volleys are amazing!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

I really enjoyed watching the match between Llodra and del Potro today. Llodra was amazing, and he was the reason I joined the forum today. I have never seen volleying like that before. I wanted him to win...so I could see him play more singles.

Good point. I have been in Monte Carlo for the whole week and the best match I saw was the doubles between the Murray and the Bryan brothers. Too bad that there is hardly no doubles on TV or on streams.

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

I know a lot of people dislike his personality and I agree he can be a dick at times, but for me there isn't a better sight in tennis today than Llodra net-rushing someone like Del Potro.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Ok, fact is I think Nadal has the best volleys on tour. But hey it's such a subjective thing.

Of course, just a general tip: when too many people are disagreeing with you, you might have missed something.
Bla-bla-bla, I didn't read anything Fumus wrote. Post some smilies. bla-bla-bla. I think Llodra has the best vollies, everyone else thinks this too therefore you cannot be right. bla-bla-bla.

You respond like 90% of the posters here on MTF, neither bothering to craft a coherent argument or even acknowledging the valid points I've made. I'm wasting my effort writing anything, I think.

You could think Nadal has the best vollies on tour, why not? It's an opinion.

ANY TOPIC ABOUT WHO HAS THE BEST _________ IS SUBJECTIVE. Posters rate these things so differently...either by the beauty of the shot, the pace of it, it's effectiveness, the spin..etc. etc. I mean it's just silly. We all have our own thoughts about what makes the best, the best.

Sorry but you telling me Llodra is the best simply because he is...is just stupid. I'm not worried about anyone else disagreeing with me, I was having a discussion about this with you. You can't seem to come up with any reasons why Llodra is the best except that, I am wrong and he is.

Now that I've made my points, let me put this in a post you will understand.

bla-bla-bla. Smiley face. One word dismissive answer. Everyone knows I'm right.

Put a lid on the cockiness already, you're still making zero sense. I didn't elaborate on my opinions in the last post exactly because of that; I've tried to talk sense to nonsensical people here before without any luck. "You could think Nadal has the best vollies on tour, why not?" Really? Then why are you even talking here and disputing OPs post about Llodra if there literally is no right and wrong? "Player X is the best at _______" is not nearly as subjective as you think. (Or pretends to think because saying it is sounds cool.)

Thing is, when you bring in Tsonga and Fish who can't hit a punch volley to save their life into this discussion you can't really convince anyone anymore.

You want reasons why Llodra is the best? Because he has the best mix of touch, depth & variation at the net. His movement there is great too. Happy? (And for further information on the subject, read the other posts in this thread.)
