I totally agree with that. His volleying has improved immensely. He still looks a little awkward/uncomfortable when he does it but he has become a lot more consistent and won a lot more points than he lost when he came into the net. I was impressed by how hard and flat he was hitting the ball again. That was something that was conspicuously absent v Verdasco.
His movement was lacking severely though. Monfils is a beautiful mover, but terribly inconsistent yet.
I don't think Andy's movement was 'lacking severely'. sure he doesn't have the fluid grace of a Federer/Sampras, but he's no slouch around the court either.
I agree about Monfils tho, some of the balls he got back were amazing.
