Murray is one of the best at putting hard serves back in play.
Agassi returns serves with the most agressive returns, but they have to be in his hitting zone, he was aced more than any good returner.
Djokovic is almost like a cross between them, lot of ball back in play with good pace.

Totally agreed. Overall I'll go with Djokovic since he can do a bit of both.

You people....

It's clearly Agassi. If we're talking about who's the best at going after balls and put them back in play, then Nole....but if we're talking about who was the best at hurting you with returns, it was without a doubt Agassi. He would hit winners, after winners, after winners just by returning the ball.

Best defensive return (blocking great serves back): Federer and Murray are tied
Best offensive return: Agassi


Honourable mentions to Connors, Djokovic, Ferrer, Blake and Nalbandian.

Nole better returner than Agassi? Are you people high?
as someone said, Aggasi was aced a lot - and returning is avoiding to be aced and returning the ball with aggression which prevents opponent to attack you. And in that part of the game - Nole is the best ever.
