Gasquet says Djokovic has the best return, ahead of Nadal and Federer

Gasquet rates Nole’s return as the best:

“He returns incredible, that’s for sure,” the 24-year-old Frenchman said. “So to make some (service) points for myself is really difficult. That’s why he broke me a lot of times.

“That’s a big weapon for me, the serve, and I couldn’t (win) points with it. For me, Djokovic has the best return. Compared to Rafa (Nadal) and Roger, he has the best return.”


Does this solve the debate?



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

It's only his opinion, but personally I agree with him. Of the big 3, Nole is the best returner.

Did it need solving?

Murray (when he's not slumping) has a better return than Fed and Nadal too, as does Ferrer and possibly a few others.

Re: Gasquet says Djokovic has the best return, ahead of Nadal and Federer

Federer and Nadal are not the best returners anyway, so it's not exactly news. I still rate Murray clearly above in general, though not at this particular point in time.

Re: Gasquet says Djokovic has the best return, ahead of Nadal and Federer

He's by far a better returner than both Nadal and Federer, does this even need to be discussed? Nadal's and Federer's return of serves are horrible now compared to what they were a few years ago.

Pfft, not as insightful as Tsonga's Fedal era is over opinion.

Re: Gasquet says Djokovic has the best return, ahead of Nadal and Federer

this topic, how ever meaningless, should be discussed on MTF, if for no other reason, than for opinion of some delusional clowns who believe murray has the better return game than nole.

other than that, its a non issue.

reliability...

Re: Gasquet says Djokovic has the best return, ahead of Nadal and Federer

Isner said that because Murray gets a lot of balls back and he doesn't have a clue what to do with them.

Djokovic is an aggressive returner which means that if he gets a good look on the ball, you're fucked as the server.

The second scenario is much more dangerous because it's completely out of your hands.
