Which top 30 player has the best volley?

There aren't so many that really got skills on the net... so who is the best one?

Henin
Kuznetsova
Venus (weird, but makes them)
Ivanovic (really showed great netplay @ yec)
Petrova
Mauresmo
Schiavone
Srebotnik
Vaidisova (also played great volleys indoors!)
Other...who?

Re: Which top 30 player has the best volley?

Venus has I think the best reach, obviously, and the best swinging volleys, but JH has the best drop volleys and overheads and AM has the best traditional volleys.

Mauresmo - she really "knife's" it

Petrova has tremendous touch at the net (on a good day)

Hard to choose between Justine and Amelie.

for me, Vaidisova isnt even close to the likes of Justine and Amelie. Ana volleyes have improved out of sight this season but arent quite there yet. Francesca while is a decent doubles player who has reached the YEC there, imo a poor voolleyer, having watch her play at Wimbledon this year against Kremer.

Re: Which top 30 player has the best volley?

I would hate to have JH, AM or VW at the net against me!

Venus reach is just crazy - I voted her for obvious reasons!

Re: Which top 30 player has the best volley?

I remember reading old threads on here from 2004, during the US Open, and a few people remarked how Dementieva had (among) the best hands/skills at net out of the top players. Now she can't volley for shit, but in 2004, she was a killah up the court.

Now it's either Henin or Mauresmo. Both are wizards up there, but I think Amelie is a bit more of a wizard, particularly the past few years. She had many hopeless moments up there before 2005.

Re: Which top 30 player has the best volley?

Amelie

Justine
Venus

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: Which top 30 player has the best volley?

it really is between Justine and Mauresmo. You could also put Venus up there because her reach is demon but she can be kind of sloppy with the actual volley.

Venus. You don't own wimbledon 4 times without the best volley on tour
