Well, its a tough question, maybe more suited for Rollo. If I was to throw out 5 names, probably

1. Martina Navratilova
2. Jana Novotna
3. Billie Jean King
4. Alice Marble
5. Virginia Wade

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Interesting picks, Jordan.... looking back at it - I should have Hingis in my list. Hands of a feather that girl.

Some of you might never have heard of her, but i watched Lena Tatarkova of Ukraine in the Wimbledon final a few years ago, and she is amazing at the net. She is the best woman volleyer i have ever seen, barring only Navratilova.

Hmm, did/does Natasha have a great volley? (Arrgg, I wish I could place her in ONE tense.) Go Z-Woman...

Well, I can only comment in players I've seen play, so although I think BJK was a great voleyer, I'm not going to include her in my list.

1-Navratilova
2-Novotna
3-Sukova
4-Sabatini
5-Hingis (I think Kournikova WAS a better volleyer than Hingis, but it's been so long since she's played well that I can't include her here).
