When the perfect bounce of hard courts gave players no incentive to hit the ball before it bounced to avoid bad bounces.

2002

i think watching hewitt win wimbledon was such a huge shocker

it died out so fast

its such a bloody shame, its not even considered important for an aTP player to know basic volley techniques

roddick doesnt know basic volley technique

Default Re: When did you first think serve and volley tennis was dying out?

we had instances before the 2000 us final where baseliners got the better of serve and volleyers.......

i don't think sampy was all that focused after wimbledon 2000.......if i am not wrong he did not play a tournament from wimbledon to us open that year or did he play cincinnatti i am not sure.......

the rise of players like kafelnikov, moya, rios, kuerten to no.1 spots, agassi's resurgence.......i actually feel the baseliners trend really started in the 90s.......serve and volley just got killed eventually because the intent among the players to volley started declining.......what adds to this opinion is the fact that baseliners like kafelnikov, kuerten, rios and moya were no mugs at the net either.......

i don't believe in this 'groundstroke evolution' bullshit......sampras even in his later stages of his career held a comfortable lead of 4-1 over hewitt until 2001 and hewitt took over once sampras totally faded off.......heck did pete even care about tennis after 2000?

people talk as if hewitt or one of those weak era clowns started some new trend......my arse.......the trend actually started in the 90s when agassi zoomed on to the scene with big returns and started blasting people from the back.......

we had the SNV geniuses as well as up and coming baseliners who were no mugs at the net either.......the reason why i believe 90s was the best era.......

Default Are you glad that Serve & Volley is pretty much extinct now?

It seems that this style of play that so dominated Tennis in its earlier days is now extinct probably for good and is not coming back. As a Tennis fan do you think this is good for Tennis?

I think it's very bad because the best is diversity.

No, it's awful. I'm not even a fan of it but it would be nice to have a wide variation of players now. Also sucks that 4 of the top 5 are defensive baseliners now to be fair too.

I like diversity. And I certainly wish there were more dynamic, interesting players like Llodra instead of servebots like Raonic or baseliner bashers like Almagro.

Llodra is the very last S&V player and he is really old.

Once he is gone S&V will officially go the way of the dinosaur. Extinction.
