Who has the best return of serve?
In the '90's, people said Monica Seles had the best return-of-serve in the history of women's tennis. I recall Mary Carillo said this, and Nick Bolletieri once couldn't praise it enough.
But with the power servers of today, especially Venus and Serena, serves -- to me, at least -- seem harder to return than ever.
Is Monica still the best returner? If not, who is? Do you think she truly was at one time?
Also, while I'm on the subject, let me toss this out: I've lost count of the number of times I've heard TV commentators point out that if Monica (or anyone, I guess) would back up, she'd give herself more time to hit the Williams sisters' serves. None of them seem to realize that doing so would also open up the angle, and therefore nothing would be achieved. Am I off for thinking that?
