Nicolas Almagro's Game Style

Server.png

Server

High

When compared with his opponents, Nicolas Almagro took his biggest edge with his Serve making on average 25% more aces/service winners than them. For a clay court specialist, we can say that he was a big Server.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Nicolas Almagro was a dominating Puncher. He took a big edge with his forehand attacks but could also count on his single-handed backhand. However, he was more effective with his forehand than backhand.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Low

Nicolas Almagro could not be regarded as a Tempo player at all. He played with heavy topspin on both sides and did not take the ball on the rise close to his baseline.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Low

Only 8% of Nicolas Almagro’s points were won at the net and this result was below average. He often preferred to attack another forehand (or backhand) than to follow one of these shots to the net.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium-low

Nicolas Almagro could not be regarded as a Retriever because only 35% of his points were won by the errors of his rivals (below average). He was really an aggressive baseliner who didn’t count on his opponents’ errors to win a match.
