The vast majority of notable serve-and-volleyers were from Western countries. Meanwhile, most notable players (bar Ivanisevic or Zivojinovic) from Communist/former Communist countries played from the baseline. I can't recall any Russian serve-and-volleyers, at all.

Perhap there were reasons for this...

I am talking about the 1980s-1990s.

Andrei Olhovskiy was a Russian who served and volleyed on all surfaces, IIRC. Of course he did it on all serves when he upset Courier at 92 Wimbledon.

Clay. The answer is clay. There were a few S/V guys, though. Giant Milan Srejber was pure attack. I think Tomas Smid and Jan Kodes were pretty good at the net too.
