Federer is a good volleyer in today's standard but not really a true volleyer.
And he uses it on non-crucial points only. He glues himself to baseline
on critical points like break points. In that sense, he is not much better
than other 3.
When he debuted in 99, he baselined on carpet when lots of players
were still S&Ving.
I'm not sure if he could incorporate S&V successfully. He is a power baseliner
perfect fit for post-2003 tour condition.
