i think Johansson returns great,
which is one of the reason he got AO,
though mostly by luck, but still.......

Alex Corretja has some great returns.
Also Ferrero & Gonzalez (see their match as Basel this year)

Tennis, Ergo Sum.

Novak is actually a solid returner.

Andre is known as a best returner....... it's strange not to mention him here...

Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Marat Safin,Mikhail Youzhny!!!

i saw one brilliant return from Yevgeny K.
it was a drop shot return...wasn't at all coincidental...really true brilliance.!

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Jerome Golmard returned phnomenally at the AO this year againist Ivanisevic, (whose serve is actually quite good). Ivan was left standing. That probably was the best exhibiton of returns i've seen, although he lacks consistentsy.

Dominik Hrbaty? There are probably six alphabets that spell that, and it's legend. Dominik is Dominik and he's a legend in every little town, city and village across the globe.

He doesn't only stand for our sport, but he stands for mankind. His athleticism, him as a person, as a human being, his character, to go out and do things his way, is just fantastic. And that is the charm about Dominik Hrbaty.
