Who's The Best Returner (Non-Williams) ?

Lindsay showed some fantastic returns on JCaps serve, first and second
Monica is also known as a punisher
Also 'best returner' has to mean both First AND Second serves

So who's the best returner?

1st serve? Lindsay
2nd serve? Monica

Overall? I gotta go with Lindsay

It's too tough to call. Before her injury, Davenport was considered the best returner in the game. Jennifer's strongest feature in her game is her return. Seles has always been a great returner.

On any given day, I'd pick Lindsay though.

I am a sinner too!

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!

I personally don't like any of them because it's all about hitting hard the ball and since I prefer other type of game I'd say Hingis used to be the best.
