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)

Novak is actually a solid returner.:eek:

But if you are talking about flashy returners you got Grosjean, Kuerten, and Gonzalez.

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

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.
