returns are too good now. Also it's harder to sv on a really fast first serve, the ball gets on your quicker and you're volleying from the service line or back. Great s&ver are usually guys like edberg, rafter, mcenroe who use a great 3/4 spin serve and close well. As the top tier s&vers probably only sampras was the only guy blasting 1st serves. And guys like Goran, Krajicek, Phillipousis weren't top tier s&vers they were guys with ridiculously huge serves who happened stroll up and volley after delivering a bomb.
