Best Volleyers of All Time

Okay, Martina is a given, but who do you think fills out the rest of that list (top 10)?

5. Maria Bueno
6. Virginia Wade
7. Jana Novotna

I have to go with players I have actually seen.

Not many

Martina Navratilova
Jana Novotna
hmmm
hmmm

Martina Hingis had great volleys but she rarely went to the net, same goes for Justine.

I guess I stick to Navratilova and Novotna.

Men:

Pat Rafter
Stephan Edberg
Pete Sampras
Boris Becker
John McEnroe
Pat Cash

If you say nobody is old enough to remember when women could volleey, then why start a thread like this?

Hingis is top 10? maybe

It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile, winning's winning
