Is Taylor Dent the last Serve & Volleyer ?
He's the youngest and most dedicated to serve and volley today. I don't see any youn player coming with that style of game, and even Murray the Scotish plays from the baseline.
I find it pretty sad, as some of the greatest and most talented players were S&V guys, like Laver, Edberg, Sampras... Do you think the current surface policy, with a slow down to develop rallies, and the risks that you have to take now to come to the net, will kill forever this kind of player ?
"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."
