The latter would be a little more interesting number.
Those are all serve and volley for both first and second. The Laver numbers are from the 1969 Wimbledon final. I gave up trying to find serves where he stayed back, both him and Newcombe s&v'd pretty much every point. The Fed, Sampras numbers are from 2001, and I didn't find much difference in the times regardless of whether they came in or not.
