Juju followed closely by amelie who does not handle low volleys quite as well or volley as well off of hard hit balls.

I'm surprised that more people haven't said Davenport. She has great touch at the net and great statistics when she comes forward. She also is a great doubles player - which her volleying skill has a lot to do with. :confused:

I'm very surprised, too. But I think it's a case of "out of sight, out of mind". No one's seen Lindsay play for awhile, so she's been forgotten. :cool: But she's got the best volley, forgotten or not. :yeah:

Davenport, easily. If she came in more on grass, she could be even better than she is on it.

Davenport is the most natural volleyer in the top 10. It's only her footwork that makes her a less effective volleyer than someone like Amelie. She has far superior vollyers to someone like Henin or Kuznetsova - she just gets lazy though.

Amelie and Justine have the most natural volleys and the best touch, they look the best at the net as well, in terms of knowing where to hit the ball and move as well as balence

The EASTBOURNE final shows Justine making some excellent, excellent volleys.

It's Amelie with Nadia and Justine close behind. Imo, Lindsay has great technique on the volley, but she tries to be TOO good with the volley when all that is need is a simple punch volley instead of a drop volley on the sideline.

I'm not trying to be a hater, but how could someone have chosen Patty or Maria in the poll? :confused:

Yeah, that's her problem. But when she was younger she used to come in more often.
Lindsay, Amelie, Nadia

Lindsay is a great player of course, but not at the net IMO!
She has a lot of problems with low volleys and I've seen her missing some very easy volleys :eek:

As has Henin. As has Mauresmo. As has Kuznetsova.

From a technical standpoint, her volleys are the best out there.

Hingis
I'd agree, if Hingis was in the top 10, because I think she's got the best volleys of anyone playing tennis right now.

However, out of the top ten, it is most definitely Davenport, and I am very surprised that she's so far behind in the poll.

everyone struggles with low volleys, but neither Kuzy, JHH, Momo etc. won as many doubles events YEC, Wimbledon, USO, RG...and noone from the top10 has as good volley technique as Lindsay has. Martina is the best out there, but she's like 13th in the ranks atm;)
Ask some people like Navratiova etc. they'll tell u the truth:p
