Re: Best service returners on the tour
Venus? No way... she can't attack second serves with the same force as her sister, and makes a lot of errors.
I used to think Clijsters' had the best return of first serves, and Henin attacked second serves most consistently, however that has clearly not been true in 2010.
I'd say Serena is the best, but Hingis/Capriati/Davenport/Seles (i.e. last generation) were generally superior returners...
