Re: Endless Djokovic-Nadal debates. Who is the better volleyer?
neither, they're both fairly poor
it's not their fault of course, volleying is a neglected skill in these homogenised courts
young federer was an excellent volleyer, easily the equal of sampras and not far off rafter. if he he had continued serving and volleying, there's no doubt he'd be up there with edberg and mcenroe. fortunately he had the foresight to adapt his game
if i had to pick between the two, then i would say nadal. he seems to have developed a workable volley, though he'll never be comfortable at the net
i've said my thoughts on djokovic's net play in other threads. it's the one thing that's preventing him from being an excellent all round player
federer, tsonga and murray are the best volleyers in today's top 10
