Jimmy Arias can be regarded as a hard & clay court specialist and his game style was between a Puncher and a Retriever. He got an edge by making more points than his rivals with the topspin forehand & backhand (Puncher) but also in the rallies over 8 shots (Retriever).
Puncher / High
From the back of the court, Jimmy Arias could follow his forehand to the net when he has a chance. His game plan was first to build the point with his topspin forehand and then coming in to finish the points at the net. As a result his favorite way to move forward was the baseline approach.
Offensive / Medium
Jimmy Arias cannot be regarded as a Tempo player because his main game plan was to dominate his rivals with the quality of his topspin forehand. Tempo players take the ball on the rise close to their baseline, possess aggressive backhands and play rather flat.
Tempo / Low
As said previously, Jimmy Arias got an edge by making more points than his rivals with the topspin forehand & backhand (Puncher) but also in the rallies over 8 shots (Retriever). In total, 48% of his points were won by the errors of his rivals and this result was above the general average of the ATP players.
Retriever / High
Jimmy Arias cannot be regarded as a Server becasue when compared with his rivals, he was dominated with the Serve making 2 times fewer points than them with that shot. When his first serve was in, only 8% of the time it was an ace or a service winner and this result is far below average.
