Name players that know when and how to come to the net and play a proper volley

1. Schiavone
2. Zvonareva
3. Mattek Sands

Anyone else?

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Petrova (She knows when to come forward, has great transition game and her volleys are good too)
Kuznetsova (Good volleys + good approach shots)
Vinci (great hands, just doesnt have enough power to consistently hit decent approach shots)
Kvitova (Good approach shots, decent volleys)

In all seriousness, only MJMS fits the bill from singles players

Maria Jose really is the best player in the game right now in terms of knowing how to move foward to the net but honestly at least half of the top 50 are reasonably comfortable at the net.

Wozniacki.

In all seriousness: MJSM, Venus, Shiavone... and it gets quite difficult from there on. Stosur should be on the list. But for whatever reason, she forgets that she is a former world no.1 in doubles when she plays singles .

Bashing tennis players for whatever reason is seeming to be this board's favourite pastime. Loving it!

As well as the aforementioned Kirilenko, Strycova, Benesova and Hantuchova can all handle themselves very well at the net.
