To be fair, S&V was a lot more common/easier with wood racquets since it was so hard to hit returns with that equipment, esp on faster surfaces. You got a lot of unreturned serves, easy put aways back then. Plus the grass has been changed as well.

Almost everybody S&V quite a bit on grass in the 70s, even Connors.

in fairness he won about 80% of his points by serving and volleying during his serving games in his first wimbledon.
