I can do it if I have enough reps in practice. And the server is not a strong one. Then I can put the ball anywhere. I've had people say, "I've never seen returns like that." It's like hitting a return ace. Why is that not a statistic? Very satisfying to be able to control returns so well that they hold only half the time.
