"I'm swayed by a couple of factors. Even indoors, Fed handled Pete's serve (which was actually slightly faster than when he played I believe) in their exhibitions pretty well, and Fed does not return as well as DJ. I could never really…"
"While I agree that the volleys are not taught so much or well to Jrs, I think there are many tour players like Nadal, who have fantastic volley technique, but don't see it as a great option in today's game. I think the slice and volley are…"
"I just have to ask, do you guys think there are virtually no S&V players in the game now because they don't have the skills?
Or because top coaches and touring pro have decided that would be quiet ineffective vs today's talented game?"
"Why does it always have to come down to demeaning comments with guys like you? Is it because you can't make a case otherwise?
I will not reply in a similar manner although it is clear that I see quite a few who would and "have had"…"
"I agree that Rafa has a better volley than Fed by a slight margin. Shame we don't get to see more of it, but Fed is close and still gets the edge on Pete in my book with the volley. Pete mishit more drop volleys than anyone and it worked so…"

DJ can hit to that running Fh and then he will take the reply to that running Fh…"
"I don't see Davis Cup as a Major event and like how you mention that maybe the Olympics is a better place to rep the countries now. Davis Cup might could find a niche if it went amateur only event and feature the up and coming talent or older…"
"Seems Djokovic wins each match up of skills. While Pete's serve was very tough, Dj is the best returner I've ever seen and I expect would fare well enough to get the breaks he needs. Dj serve while not on par with Pete's, is still…"
