Of the Top 10, Who Are the Best Volleyers?
I'm very amazed by the top women's tennis players, because players #10-30 can volley better than virtually all of the elite few. I guess that's more proof that the top players only need speed and power but no technical skill whatsoever, not to name names. Anyway, who are the top 10 volleyers in the...top 10?
1) Martina Hingis
By the book, perfect volleys, amazing shotmaking when put to the test.
2) Justine Henin
Her volleys are excellent, she can really mix her game up.
3) Kim Clijsters
Such great athleticism, instinct, and reflex around the net, a shame she isn't up there more often.
4) Daniela Hantuchova
( I think she is ranked #11, but Sandrine is now retired so we don't count her) Very nice volleys, her reach helps her for sure.
5) Amelie Mauresmo
Great form, but you never know what she will show you on a certain day, so a little to inconsistent to be ranked higher.
6) Jennifer Capriati
Nice punching volleys, very powerful, but is a horrible doubles player for some reason.
7) Lindsay Davenport
Decent volleys, nice touch, but since she never shows it, it is hard to put her up higher.
8) Venus Williams
Terrible volleys, only knows how to punish loopy high shots, a decent drop volley saves her from the bottom of the list.
9) Serena Williams
See above, wins all her points at net by crushing loopers, but when her volleys are tested, she is a fish out of water.
10) Monica Seles
Well it's Monica, nothing new here.
