So who returns better? Please say Mugray, because I need a laugh.
you lost all credibility along with Roadmap given that you will support Murray in everything ....next Murray has the best FH....DJOKOVIC HAS THE BEST RETURN IN TODAYS GAME.......every god damn expert said so for years yet two British dudes know better........
Returning skills are not to be confused with overall return game.
Statistics about winning return games is not solely based on return skills, but also on rallying ability.
Hence, Djokovic's return statistics are a bit 'inflated' - although not as much as Nadal's (who is regularly among the top returners in Ricoh matchfacts even though his return is nothing to write home about - he 'just' wins most rallies where he does succeed in returning).
In fact, the way he beat Nadal and Federer this year is precisely because of his rallying abilities.
This is not to say that Djokovic isn't a great returner. Obviously, he is great, very talented. But Murray is better as far as returning alone is concerned - when we don't take into account the subsequent rally. Djokovic's talent is precisely in returning serve in a way to negate the server's advantage; and from that point he dominates because he is simply better than anyone else ATM when it comes to rallies. Even than Nadal, who is traditionally dependent on rallying, far more than on serve or return.
(This is highlighted by his phenomenal hold game from 2010. - it's not THAT much about his serve, but his serve + rallying. It is hard to break Nadal's serve not BECAUSE he has an excellent serve - but because it's hard to win a rally againt him, if you're not named Novak.)
