Not nearly as ignorant and offensive as someone not being able to handle other poster's opinions.
But okay, let's say for the sake of argument that you are correct.
What isn't the Serve & Volley style of play pervasive in today's game?
It's not an opinion if it is just factually wrong. Serve & volley is phased out for many reasons:
- Players playing S&V tend to need more to reach their peak and master all elements of their game. It's not seen as a profitable style of tennis to teach at most academies.
- The courts have been slowed down and homogenised. The last time Wimbledon played very slick was in 2001. Since then they seem to have switched progressively to slower grass with a higher, more even bounce which for obvious reasons benefit the baseliners. Didn't the ATP start using larger and heavier balls to slow the game down too?
- Most importantly, racket technology and especially string technology have improved by leaps and bounds over the last years. Increased sweet spots means you can now hit the ball pretty much anywhere on your racket face and still make a controlled powerful shot, which is very useful when you are under pressure and on the run and behind the baseline (the player being forced to pass is in a defensive position). Luxillon Big Banger, and Babolat RPM and other similar strings have made it much easier to generate topspin, which allows players to hit dipping shots and acute angled passing shots much more easily.
^ On my last point, it's not surprising that Schiavone and Stosur both emerged as top contenders around 2010, when Babolat pushed out their new string.
DO you honestly believe that players today are slower in general than in Graf's era?
No, I think the players outside the top 10 or top 20 have gotten faster/fitter. But there is not so much difference at the top level, i.e. players who are legitimate slam contenders. I do think that players overall now have more stamina because of the longer matches.
