I don't play much singles, but when I did I always took some volleys. I tried to make them extra perfect for exactly that reason. I also think having them believe I am a good volleyer will make people go for too much.

Also, I like to see if my opponent can lob. Don't laugh. There are some people who are so challenged feeding a warm-up lob that you know they could never lob you in the match.

If the pros warm up volleys and overheads, I figure that's a good enough reason for me.
