That's why I say it's the weakest part of his game now, and in my opinion, the only real big major liability he has left now that his BH, movement, and net/transition games have improved so much. But I definitely agree that he returned *particularly* badly yesterday. Then again, he pretty much did everything particularly badly yesterday.
I agree that his return game has been not up to par for the year. However, yesterday, it just seemed like a five year-old was back there returning the ball. Agassi's son could have done better. I mean Lleyton had a 44% 1st serve for the match and only 1 df. Andy was not aggressive enough, and obviously needed a proctologist to remove his head from his ass.
