  • It's harder to serve well when you serve and volley, compared to concentrating on serve only. So your serve will be less potent than your best serves.
  • Returner will not just float the return if server serves and volley. In other words, returner will go for more and direct return. Just look at the Agassi's aggressive returns in era of huge serve and volleyers. These days nobody serve and volley. So your priority is just block it deep.
