    the commentators also said that roger looked up at his box to get their signal first, before deciding to challenge a point.

    Johnny Mac sometimes says the most moronic things. Pretty soon he will say Ferrer is a better volleyer than Federer!

    He said Nadal is much better volleyer than Fed and everyone was in state of shock. But it was true.

    he said hes the better volleyer right now!! as in djokovic is making more volleys as hes able to get down and is more flexible and fed recently has been shanking volleys but if you look at it career based federer is a faaaaaaaaaar better volleyer

    Not surprising, even though the tournament stats say otherwise.

    Good chance that he will say that his grandma volleys better than Fed too by the tournaments end.

    Yeah, that's a real head scratcher. Nole and Nadal are light years behind Fed as a volleyer. They only come in to knock off a volley in which the point was set up perfectly from the ground. Nadal almost looks worse than me when he has to hit a ball with pace at his feet. Djokovic doesn't have the soft hands of Fed. Mac was so quiet today in the box because Fed basically told him you have no idea what's going on in the men's game through his play.

    and becker says something to the liking of novak not being being able to be compared to federer at net after federer drills a pass past djokovic after djokovic drops a second volley short early in their semi.

    I don`t know what Mac says but Federer,even if his eyes are closed,is hitting better overheads then Djokovic.

    few years ago I always thought Federer had the best volleys but now I think Mac is right on.. Federer missed way too many easy volleys at the net.. so Nadal>Djokovic>federer as currently in Volley department.. and yeah.. Federer still has the best overhead/backhand overhead in this game...

    Who cares about the best volleyers in the top 10? They are all crap!

    It's like asking who has the best serve between, Kournikova and Dementieva.

    When all things considered, the whole question is irrelevant.

    Very true. The best volleyers on tour are either doubles specialists or singles journeymen. People might say Tsonga is the best volleyer of the top 10 and yet he bricked so many easy ones today. The best player with significantly better volleys than the top 10 would be someone like Stepanek who at his best was a top 15ish player.

    lol it was never true. Fed's always been light years better than Nadal at the net.
