Who is the best volleyer of the new generation?

I was wondering this because I've seen them all play (some more than others), and not one stands out to me as a natural volleyer. Who do you guys think has the best touch/feel at net? Oh, and I included Sharapova because technically she is part of their generation, just has been on the top of the game longer than the others.

Who'd you vote for? I haven't seen these players volley enough. Jelena's were pretty good though.

I tink Jelena is a different generation from everyone else though actually.

I voted for Jelena. Her volleys are kind of awkward sometimes (especially her two handed backhand one) but when she's in the zone, and her game is working, she's effective at net whether or not it looks good or not.

I guess I don't really remember her volleying too much. I recall seeing her make some decent one in the Serena match in LA.
