I think Fish is definitely better than Federer at net. At least was. I remember how badly rogie was schooled at net by mighty Mardy at Davis Cup tie in 2012 :lol:

Federer is better at the net now than he was in 2012 (though it's actually his net play which saved him down some BPs in the 2nd set in the Wimbledon final that year)...

Mardy is definitely better. Federer's backhand volley is a complete mess. Roger hacks down and drives backhand volleys into the net over and over.

McEnroe had the perfect volley form on both sides. There is no reason to over spin volleys. Just put the racket out front level with the ball.

I think, best volleyers for the last 10 years:
1. Federer
2. Loodra
3. Fish
4. Stepanek
5. Tsonga
Tsonga's volleys are nothing special, Gasquet is probably better than him.

Nadal's not in the poll? Don't let McEnroe take a look on it :spit:

:lol: Roger's backhand volley is a very good shot, fanboy.

As for best volleys ever: Mac on the fh side and Edberg on the bh.

Has it really been that long since Henman was in his prime? I feel old.
