I often use that strategy if, for nothing else, to throw my opponents off. Make 'em hit a real passing shot or a decent lob (luckily, I'm still, cough, young enough to chase some of them down). Certainly at the low(er) level I play at, you don't see too many S&Vers so it often works, at least for the first set. By then, though, the damage is usually done and they can't figure out if I'm coming in or not!
And your volleying will get better the more you do it!
