Who actually has the best volley in Womens tennis?

I have readen threads like, who has the best serve, best forehand, best backhand, and even dropshot.
So who has got the best volleys at the net?

I think Venus is really good at the net, even Pam Shriver said this year that Venus has the best volleys.

Watch my uploaded highlights of Williams sisters their matches on this link: http://www.veoh.com/userVideos.html?...me=tennismania

Titles won:
Fill in the Draw: Australian Open 2007,Bali 2007
Race The Game: Player of the Month January 2007 and August 2008,Player of The Week Istanbul/Strasbourg 2007, Carson 2007,New Haven/Forest Hills 2008, US OPEN 2008

Hingis, Mauresmo, and then Venus. Venus has the most tendency out of the three for her volleys to go into the bottom of the net.
Venus has better approach shots to the net. Actually a lot of times her approach shots become winners.
Hingis and Mauresmo don't but compensate with better volleys.

Something needs to change.

Navratilova, followed close by Raymond. They are both amazing.

There are many others though (Amelie, Hingis, Venus, Davenport...).

If we are talking about active player.....I would name a few....

Navratilova-Peschke-Mauresmo-Raymond

Now best volley on the attack has to be Mauresmo followed closely by Venus....

Amelie - Marcos

I think Roberta Vinci is the best volleyer of the players I've seen recently. She regularly makes volley winners off very difficult balls - the only thing that lets her down sometimes at the net is a lack of reach..

lets say...
somewhat 4eva - Navratilova, King, Novotna , etc.

and then the doubles specialists...Raymond, Stubbs etc.
Along active singlists:
most of the top10 players have really good volley skills:
1.Lindsay, Williams Sistaz, Alicia and Amelie - who has a baffling volley
2.JHH, Petrova, Mary, ...Hingis so did Kournikova (in recent years)
but perhaps Masha , Kim and Jenn should work on it sometimes

THE COMEBACK of Lindsay Davenport
the purest striker of the ball

Aga&Ula Marta Masha Vee&Ree Ana Nastya Eleni Patty Mary

Hingis. Mauresmo, sometimes. And Venus, when she's playing good.
