Re: The Good Serve and Volleyers

Good list.

Taylor Dent is quickly becoming an excellent serve and volleyer. Don't know if he is in the class of those you listed yet (haven't watched enough matches of his to make that judgement myself), but he's definitely close.

Re: The Good Serve and Volleyers

I wouldn't classify Federer as a serve-and-volleyer (he has an all-court game) but the others fit.

/ / / /
Djokovic.
\ \ \ \
Coric.
/ / / / /
Youzhny.
\ \ \ \
Del Potro.
/ / / /
Paire.
\ \ \ \
Ferrero.

Re: The Good Serve and Volleyers

Yes, Federer's not a Serve-Volleyer but he's got some of the best volleys in the game He's a natural Serve-Volleyer, but he stays back alot to so he would be classified as "All Court"

Taylor needs to crowd the net more imo....

Re: The Good Serve and Volleyers

Good list, but I'd add Kafelnikov to it, untill he is officially retired.

Since when was Kafelnikov a serve volleyer?

Re: The Good Serve and Volleyers

Fish? Erm, he's not at the level of some of them, but he's at least as good as Taylor, no?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
