Nadal the best volleyer of the top 4?

Yes there it is, all the evidence provided by Volley King. Statistical evidence from one match! :twisted::twisted:

Nadal is not the best volleyer in the top 4. He barely even registers as decent in that department.

Except that link proves you agreed with VK!

Honestly, despite his inferior talent to Murray and maybe even Nadal in terms of volleying, Djokovic might just be the second best netplayer of the top guys. He actually DOES come forward when he has an opportunity. Murray and Nadal are far more prone to be glued to the baseline.

There's no question to as to who is the best though. :lol:

Yes Djokovic comes forward when he has the opportunity. Nadal used to but less so of late. Murray seems resistant too despite good volleying technique, makes no sense. He did it more on grass this summer, but then on hards glued himself back to the baseline.

If Nadal is the best volleyer of the top 4, then he is stupid for staying back so much. 15 net rushes in a near 4 hour match means he is not that comfortable. He is the best fighter of the top 4, a huge momentum player who can will his way back into a match historically better than the others. But best volleyer? No way.

This was always an absolutely asinine thing that JMac said. Federer is by far the best volleyer of the four. Murray a distant second, with Nadal and Djokovic bringing up the rear.

Maybe he has the best volleys, but sometimes you would think he has the hands of Soderling, considering how unwilling he is to come forward.

Nadal is not a volleyer at all. He takes zero risks.

He only hits a drop volley. That too when his forehand has already done all the damage and its a really weak passing shot.

He could just as well head the ball to the other side and *********s will start threads about how superior Nadal is compared to footballers.

Classic TW stuff right here.

The Bawss 09-29-2012 11:13 PM

The only thing stupider than McEnroe saying Nadal has the best top4 volleys is the people on TW who believe and agree with him. I needn't say who has the best volleys in the top 4 as it's so painfully obvious.

You guys ever watched nadal play doubles? His volleys are good. His volleys in singles are good too. Way better than federer, you guys just don't want to accept it

Federer is the only one of the top 4 or even top 10 that really has a net game. By net game, I mean comes to the net expecting to hit a half volley. Put away volleys 3 feet from the net are pretty useless in measuring net skills but it takes skill and experience to anticipate and dig out the half volleys on the service line and out them in a position to hit a clean winner. No one but Fed does this and Fed does this alot.

DolgoSantoro 09-30-2012 01:11 AM

Nadal is a pretty good volleyer, but he doesn't really take risks at net. Take McEnroe himself, the one who started all this. I'd bet a lot of the time Nadal has better volleying percentages than McEnroe did, because Mac would attack the net again and again, even if he knew he might get passed (or hit if he was playing Lendl). But no one barring *** would say Nadal is a better volleyer than Mac. He has a great volley percentage because he goes to the net when the other player is on a dead sprint, ten feet behind the baseline running away from the court . He might be the most intelligent about coming to net but in no way is he the best volleyer

Federer and Murray are better volleyers than Nadal. Djokovic is the least proficient volleyer out of top 4 although he seems more than eager to finish the points at net.

big ted 09-30-2012 02:07 AM

well nadal rarely misses up there and has excellent reflexes and technique which looks almost perfect to me. his technique looks better than federers and i have seen federer miss more than a few easy volleys from what looks like being too lax so i can see where mcenroe gets that from imo. federer also looks like he hits alot of his volleys late and doesnt attack them like nadal does. that said i think federer has more potential on his volleys as long as he doesnt get too careless

Ms Nadal 09-30-2012 02:58 AM

Rafa is able to volley well but he doesn't do it often but when he does the volleys are good!
