Obvious troll, but volleying is the most underutilized skill. It's just that you can no longer suck at ground strokes and win by serving and volleying anymore.
BUt players would be MUCH better if they were like Connors, i.e. good groundstrokes and volley, with intelligent approaching. Connors had to do it, cuz his serve was shite and his groundstrokes weren't super consistent.

However, in doubles, Nadal's drop volley and reflexes are much better than Djokovic's.
He can only hit drop volleys or putaways, though. Djokovic actually attempts punch volleys.
His BH punch volley.
His FH punch volley against Fed in Wimbledon SF.
