    loving his new aggression on his 2nd serve returns but that one was extra special, must be one of the fastest ever returns ever.

    both andy and novak are taking returning to new heights the game has never seen before.

    must admit I've been very impressed with his returning recently. Some total stonkers. He could be as good as Djokovic on the return maybe even better at this moment but we'll see if it's just an especially good patch.

    He is and has always been a better returner than Djokovic.

    get a grip. sport moves on and evolves. connors and agassi were legends in their day and all time but the game is evolving all the time.

    andy has been in top three ros of stats for years now so say it is overated is bull.

    ros is not all about returns winners. for every agassi return winner, how many aces flew past him. andy gets a far higher ros back in play and a high percentage of effective ros at that. a vast majority or people forget that about agassi, he got aced a fu..ing lot.

    You should place very little importance to it.
    So what if he hits ONE like that, then goes into the tank and slices the next 50?
    Monfils hit ONE forehand 115 mph. Then goes and hits his normal 80 mph forehand after his miss attempting to do it again.
    ONE shot doesn't define anyone's strokes.

    103 mph. Pretty good.

    Almost as fast as Rosewall's backhand.:wink:
