Re: Best returner in the game today

Murray, Ferrer, Hewitt, (on-form) Nalby.

Federer too - more at first serves, he doesn't punish second serves that often.

Others: Safin - Tursunov - Gonzalez - Berdych - Ancic - Johansson - Youzhny - Cilic - Henman - Karlovic - Mahut

Re: Best returner in the game today

Federer is better returner than people give him credit for...how else you explain his returns against Andy Roddick?

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

Re: Best returner in the game today

First serve: Fed
Second serve: Nalbandian, Blake, Davydenko come to mind.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: Best returner in the game today

I don't understand Roddick and Lopez in the pole....
I'd say
1) Ferrer
2) Nadal
3) Federer
4) Murray/Nalby

Lopez I think is underrated when it comes to return of serve...as for Roddick...I had an extra line to fill

Re: Best returner in the game today

During the Montreal Masters this August, the RDS commentator Yvan Ponton said that Roddick was well renound for his return of serve, which was hilarious.

Re: Best returner in the game today

There should be separate polls for 1st serves and 2nd serves... and by 1st serves I don't mean something Nieminen does

Anyway, this discussion is not complete without this link
http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/matchfacts/

Although it doesn't tell the whole story... Nadal is, indeed, a good returner but his score is somewhat inflated by all those points he won in his plethora of clay matches, where 'returning' is mainly irrelevant compared to the subsequent rally in which Nadal usually dominates.

Best returners of fast 1st serves seem to be Murray, Ferrer and Federer. 2nd serve I'd usually pick Nalbandian but it's a long time I've seen his best. Davy and Nole also seem to punish weak serves pretty harshly. Federer is surprisingly meek returning 2nd serves, probably because they almost always go to his BH side. Poor Fed
