Kevin Anderson is a dominant Server. When compared with his rivals, he takes by far his biggest edge with the quality of his serve. He makes on average 40% more aces/service winners than his opponents. When his first serve is in, 51% of the time it is unreturned.
Server / Very high
Kevin Anderson uses his big serve to play sometimes the serve & volley (5% of his total points won) or the 1-2 puncher approach right after his serve (7% of his total points won). In total, 18% of his points are won at the net and this is above the average of the ATP players.
Offensive / Medium-high
Having such a big Serve and being so aggressive from the back of the court, Kevin Anderson wins only 31% of his points by the errors of his rivals. This result is far below average and he can't be regarded as a Retriever at all.
Retriever / Low
From the back of the court, Kevin Anderson is an aggressive Puncher. He likes to dictate the baseline rallies with his forehand. However, he doesn't get more points on average with his forehand than his rivals but this is because his Serve takes so much place in his game than he has less chances to make more points with the forehand.
Puncher / Medium-high
From the back of the court, Kevin Anderson is not only a Puncher, he can also play the backhand in a Tempo way close to his baseline. However, the backhand results are below average and that doesn't really make him a Tempo player.
