Who is the best returner in the world now?

Who is the best in the world at breaking a serve? Last couple of eras I heard Agassi, Kucera and Hewitt. Haven't heard who the best is in recent times.

Reading into those stats - perhaps Ferrer vs Soderling won't be so one sided after all.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Who is the best returner in the world now?

Ferrer is amazing at returning serve. It's very unusual to have possibly the world's best returner not even in the top 10 in the rankings but that seems to be the case. Ferrer has had incredible return stats for many years now so can realistically be considered one of the best if not the best out there at the moment.

Murray & Nalbandian.


Not Nadal, his ROS is actually average. His return of serve game as a package is very good though.

Re: Who is the best returner in the world now?

There are different factors to consider. Once you return a serve unless it's a return ace you still have a point to win, that's where nadal is so good dominating rally's and winning the points.

Blake was a return ace beast but in general didn't win many return games.
