As noted, control vs rackethead speed.
Volleys need the most rackethead control.
Serves the most rackethead speed.
Also, if your racket tends to be on the heavier side, choking up gives you the quickness and ease of swing of a lighter racket.
It also makes less power from the shorter leverage arm, sometimes an acceptable tradeoff.
