Who is a worse volleyer?

Azarenka, Victoria

Sharapova, Maria

Wozniacki, Caroline

Ivanovic, Ana


?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Wozniacki.

Ana has good traditional volleys and the shriekers have great drive volleys. Wozniacki has neither.

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

What the fuck is up with this thread? Ivanovic and Azarenka are both far better volleyers than Stosur is.

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

Why is Ana even an option?? Vika is great at net, when she gets there.

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

Taking swing volleys out of the equation, I'm actually going to have to vote for Maria here Ivanovic has by far the best conventional volleys on this list, Azarenka's are adequate, Wozniacki isn't very inventive with them but can usually be relied on to bunt them into an open court....but Maria's are awful in all but a few matches in her career

Better than Stosur? I don't think so. But Ivanović doesn't belong in this thread for sure...

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

All struggle with volleys.

Pova has obs the best drive volley & her conventional forehand volleys (when finishing a point) are decent, she struglles a lot with her backhand volleys because she has no reach.

Caro struglles a lot with volleys but I'd say she has the best hands (of this bunch) specially on half/drop volleys.

Ivanovic has good technique her backhand volleys are really good but like anything else in her game is hit or miss most of the time.

Azarenka has the best volleys overall in this group, she doesn't really have big troubles at the net she just doesn't come in at all.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

OMGGG!!!!!!!!!!! THIS MADE MY DAY!!!!

Seriously though, get real I would never say that Stosur has a better backhand than Azarenka

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

Sharapova has actually made slight improvements on the volley. Not in terms of actual technique, but she understands how to close down a volley better, and not sleepwalk to the net like she did back in the day.

But yes, Pova and Wozniacki probably remain the worst. Wozniacki's arms of stone when she's volleying are murderous.

Re: Who is a worse volleyer?

Ivanovic should not be on the poll, she´s the best volleyer by far of those 4, and obviously you never watch some GOAT drop volleys Ana did in her matches.

The worst of them all obviously Sharapova or Caro, either one of them is terrible at the net.

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”
