Serve and volleying is explosive so it's a different kind of of tired. Baseline play is stamina based and serve and volley is explosive power.

It depends in what way you're stronger. I can tell you since I play both styles that S&V can be tiring. S&V cannot be defensive whereas you can slow play down as a baseliner.

Overall, why ask if it's tiring? Just go see for yourself. If you get tired, then train harder.

As for kick serves, watch Stefan Edberg. All he hit were kicks. He lived and died by them. He was wonderful to watch.
