As much as it hurts me to say it, Nadal is an underrated returner.

Sure his returns are short, but he gets MNAY in play. And with the rest of his game he can win the point.
Of course if he wasn't so fast, he should stand closer to the baseline on return and wouldn't get as many on play.

Gulbis is a very good returner.

Berdych very underrated too.

Ferrer in that most players consider it better than Murray's at least if not Djokovic's.
Melzer comes to mind

No way Ferrer is underrated. Fed once said he was the best on tour.

Oher than Mayer, I thought about Verdasco. He can really rip those returns! Of course h's just as error prone on the return as the rest of his game, but I think it's more a mental problem than a lack of technique.

And of course there's Giraldo! This video speaks for itself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBvesji9yOs

Can you think about other good underrated returners?
Yes. When he is OK, Mayer knows how to win against huge servers, like Isner, Raonic, and Janowicz
I think Nishikori and Melzer are also good returners, too.
