hard to say straight serve and volleyers, but the closest you'll get is probably Emmett Egger, who hasn't been doing to well as of late, and Devin Britton, who won NCAA's. It's interesting to see how other juniors will adapt to his game.

I play serve & volley when i feel that's the right strategy. I was playing baseline basher and when my first serve was in i rushed the net and easily ended points with a backhand volley. Otherwise i only use it sometimes to win some cheap points.

i usually like to serve and volley, but sometimes rally from the baseline.

Garret Dunn. 6'8" kid ranked around 100 nationally. Going to Iowa next year, but technically still a junior. Serve/Volley perhaps 90% of 1st serves and 75% of 2nd serves.

connor farren does not serve and volley on first and second serves he stays back and he sometimes comes in off a serve.

ryan harrison comes in not regularly off the serve only occansionaly to surprise the opponent and because he has very good volleys

The player who won the NY State champs over Kandath, Daniel Kreyman, is a serve and volleyer. Ranked around 60 I think, going to wake forest.

^^^ I watched the match, he didn't serve and volley throughout the match. I wouldn't label him a serve and volleyer, rather someone who comes in when necessary.

Na connor farren doesnt really serve and volley that much. He was probably playing somebody who was much worse than him
