Martina Navratilova is one that does it ALL THE TIME.

Some others that integrate it into their game a lot:
Amelie Mauresmo (did that a lot against Lindsay at Wimbledon SF)
Nadia Petrova
Justine Henin-Hardenne
many more, can't think of them right now though

JUSTINE HENIN
ALLEZ!!!

ANASTASIA MYSKINA
Riding the 3AM Rollercoaster


NADIA PETROVA
ANNA-LENA GROENEFELD

Stosur does it quite a bit on grass..... occasionally on hard court aswell. She only does it on her first serve though, she would be better doing it on her second serve which kicks up very high and would have more time to set up for the volley

MARIA SHARAPOVA

Olivia ROGOWSKA Arantxa RUS Anett KONTAVEIT Daria GAVRILOVA
Heather WATSON Olivia TJANDRAMULIA Eugenie BOUCHARD
Nicole GIBBS Jarmila WOLFE Taylor TOWNSEND Naomi BROADY
Madison KEYS Sam STOSUR Priscilla HON Madison BRENGLE

Lisa Raymond is not a serve and volleyer, and Justine hardly ever does it.

Amelie does but only on grass

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Nathalie Tauziat was the last true serve and volleyer player!


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci
