Winning at the net is not the same as having good volleys. A good approach shot is what is most essential to the net-charging style of play.
Amelie may have some of the best volleys on the women's tour, but her approach shots sometimes makes me
. She really needs to flatten out her stroke and hit it deeper if she wants to come to the net more.
Venus has good approach shots, and rarely makes mistakes on easy volleys, but lacks both the desire to develop a good net game as well as the flair to tackle the most difficult volleys. Sometimes, I think Venus is bluffing (i.e. hopes to draw a weak pass or force her opponents to go for too much) when she goes to the net, which worked well when she still had the intimidation factor going for her.
Right now, I would say Ju and Alicia has the best chance because they are not afraid to take up the net position, pick the right spots to attack the net, and have confident volleys.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
