Sharapova by far.

Wozniacki.

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

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

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

Taking swing volleys out of the equation, I'm actually going to have to vote for Maria here :crying2: 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 :lol:

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

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.

OMGGG!!!!!!!!!!! THIS MADE MY DAY!!!! :hysteric:

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

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.

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.

I've watched Ana execute some good soft touch volleys lately.

Ivanovic is a very good volleyer, and Azarenka's very capable up there as well :help:

Voted for Ivanovic when I meant Sharapova. She's terrible at volleying. Wozniacki's can be very good, but are usually just okay.

Wozniacki, easily. I think I´ve never seen her hit a good BH volley

I hope this was the case for all 4 of Ana's votes because... :help:

Obvious blinded dislike of a player there.

Wozniacki is clearly the worst here, her backhand volley especially is not reliable.

This poll should be between Sharapova & Jankovic :)

This poll sould be against Sharapova & Jankovic :)

Jankovic used to be a good volleyer.

Uh yeah we're talking about their ability to volley, her percentage of framed shots depends on her level of nervosity. Azarenka is still a mediocre volleyer even when she's in the Zone.

Sammo

Then don't vote for them, as you can see Azarenka has no votes and Ivanovic has 5.

Worst: Wozniacki then Maria. Ana and Vika are not even bad volleyers.

PS: you forgot to add Sofia Arvidson to the poll option. Her volleys in the 3rd round against Woz at IW :facepalm:

Sharapova, but she sometimes amazes me with those volleys that shouldn't be coming from her :lol:

Sharapova moves like a robot when she's up volleying. But sometimes she comes up with some really good and surprising drop-volleys out of nowhere :P

Cajka
Mar 27th, 2012, 09:40 PM
Shrieka's volleys are seriously underrated. Ana's volleys are decent, sometimes even good.

Masha and Caro... We don't see it often and when we see it, it doesn't look great. :tape:

Ana hit some pretty good volleys last night, and I've seen her do the same in several other matches. Vika's are also good, but her crazed fans need to take a chill pill before they go off saying they're better than Stosur's. I truly detest Stosur, but you can't take her volleying away from her. It's deteriorated, yes, but it will likely always be better than Vika's.

Maria's are not good.

Wozniacki's are scandalous.

woz. i've never seen her hit any decent volleys. peak sharapova did. though not these days, of course - she never ever comes to the net anyway.

azarenka and ajde don't compare to these two.

Mar 28th, 2012, 07:08 AM
As much of a Masha stan i am, definitely Maria if you only take conventional volleys into account. Maria has a good swing volley though.

Ivanovic has the best touch out of this lot especially on her backhand good technique and decent enough, Azarenka is ok she's competent just directs the ball into the court without any great feel, Sharapova is awful she has little to no feel and really only comes to net to shake hands or drive volley, Caroline is terrible as well - no feel and just pushes the ball into the court which leaves her a sitting duck. At the moment due to there being a tie for worst volley I went with drive volleys to make the decider and Sharapova is better than Caroline. I think Caroline will continue to work hard on her volleys and will become better than the other 3 in time but will never have great touch.

Azarenka's volleys are decent. Sharapova and Wozniacki are both horrendous at the net, however.

Svetlana)))
Mar 28th, 2012, 10:41 AM
Sharapova is very hit and miss (miss most of the time) but Wozniacki's are absolutely atrocious. She has no sense of how to volley at all, merely throwing herself at the ball and wishing for the best

Mar 28th, 2012, 12:49 PM
I never hesitate to let everyone know how useless Ivanovic is, but in fairness her volleys are actually pretty darn good for a 2000's aggressive baseline player :shrug: Vika is passable, and actually has some great moments. Maria is bad, no secret about that. Wozniacki is dreadful. Ana>Vika>>>Maria>Caroline.

I can't make threads... but I wouldn't be creating threads to encourage insults. I don't really spend my time trying to bitch about people, and picking whatever I can to make fun of them about. The aim, as far as I can see, isn't anything constructive.

Azarenka has won two grand slam mixed doubles titles. And she has made like three grand slam womens doubles finals and has won a number of WTA doubles titles.

Underrated again.

Azarenka, Victoria

Sharapova, Maria

Wozniacki, Caroline

Ivanovic, Ana


?

Vika is a good volleyer. Not sure why she's on this list.

The last three are a shit show. Maria can only hit swinging volleys. Caroline rarely volleys, but she's not that bad at the net, really. Ana can hit either great volleys or :facepalm: volleys.

Until the last volley I was already imagining all the Azarenka fans singing together something like 'We love mediocrity'. But yeah the last one is great, however I've heard and seen countless tennis experts drool all over the place with Stosur's volleys, one of these days I'll make a video ;)

I know that maybe you're being sarcastic, but I was actually thinking about it today. I think it's a good idea for both them, plus they both like each other(which says a lot for Maria)
