Actually Isner's clay return stats are worse than his hard I just found.
Wait until he starts having deep runs in big tournaments - Masters and Slams - his stats will then become normal. Isner managed to serve the likes of Federer and Djokovic off the court, but that obviously has a negative impact on his stats.

It's not really close; pretty much every pro asked said Isner has the best serve, no one even mentioned Raonic. Milos has a great serve, but Isner in a class of his own. His serve alone makes him a threat; even Federer, famed as the best returners of big serves, struggles to find answers against it.

Isner's return is abysmal everywhere. He must be one of the poorest returners ever to make it to the top 10, if not the poorest.

No, it just means that Cilic is good at returning Roddick's serve and Roddick is poor at returning.
He just needs to get to them to stop it from being an ace...

Forget Roddick if you want. He outaced all his opponents in his 2009 US Open run and 2010 AO run, all of them.

Ok, so maybe del Po has alot of trouble with Cilic's serve, Cilic out aced him in their last ATP match 6-4.

Raonic has served quite well vs. Fed, Murray and Ferrer this season.

He's the 24th best tennis player in the world, out of 7 billion people. Since when is that "average"?

At just 23 years old, he was won $4.5 million just in prize money (plus who knows how much more in endorsements and exhibitions).

If he's a clown, you're the joke.

Average in relative terms, compared to what he once was. Of course in absolute terms he's not average.

But compared to the player he was in late 2009/early 2010, he is.
