Yes, he is.

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

Yes, no doubt about that.

Too bad he doesn't have a better serve to play serve & volley more effectively.

He has actually very good and strong serve...we definitely can´t say it´s his weakness or that it limits him. Very effective on fast surfaces.

Too bad he only plays decent tennis a couple of tournaments each year.

I think most players would disagree with that statement. Söderling called it unbelievable, and Lindstedt said it's impossible to read. It is far from the fastest, but it is well placed and usually comes with a lot of spin.

Besides, his second serve can be lethal indoors.

He plays much more than that, just not in singles.

Yeah, but doubles isn't really relevant.

Re: LLodra best volleyier on tour?

I will be sad the day Llodra decides to only play doubles. What was great about today's match is it forced del Potro to show off touch he's not normally known for. Plus, he's half of the craziest game of tennis all year (Murray at AO).

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.
