Bobby, the decline of volleying is largely a product of topsin and slow high bouncing courts. Makes volleying more difficult and less successful. I don't think it's a lack of aptitude. Perhaps a lack of practice.
Yes, a lack of practice is what I think too. I have talked with some coaches and some of them are teaching the volley as the first shot to the kids with 7 or 8 years old. Not just because it's easier than other shots but to give them a good volley technique.
