I agree with you there.

But to show how great the Rosewall volley, Rosewall in the mid to late 1970's when he was around 40 was named by World Tennis Magazine to have the second best backhand volley and second best forehand.

I'm a big Rosewall admirer. He is perhaps the perfect example of smooth efficiency in tennis.
