    Luis, Some old Aussies were at least as good, i.e. Sedgman, Hoad, Rosewall, Laver, Emerson, Newcombe, Roche.

    I didn't see Rios in this thread, he should definitely be considered.

    Also, Mauresmo and Gasquet deserve a mention.

    IMO, Federer is a tier one volleyer, even though he was not primarily a serve and volley player.

    He hit some incredible volleys yesterday against Stan. He's in tier 1 as far as 'great hands' go.
