Yes but you have to remember they are good doubles volleyers. They don't have nearly as much net to cover.

I used to play doubles with a woman who played on her college doubles team. She was an excellent volleyer when she played doubles ande she never missed a volley but in singles she didn't cover the net nearly as well and could be passed much more.

Hoodjem, I may agree with Azzurri that Sampras may belong in tier two and I think Sedgman is tier one. Many think he may be the greatest volleyer of them all. Kramer said that if Sedgman got his hands on a volley, it was nearly always a putaway.
