Marcos Baghdatis' Game Style

Server

Medium

Despite being shorter than the other players on tour, Marcos Baghdatis still managed to get the same ratio of aces/service winners as his rivals. To do so, he took a lot of risks on his first serve with a low first serve percentage (53%). But he could get a first serve won points above average (76%).

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Marcos Baghdatis was slightly more a Tempo player than a Puncher. However, he could also run sometimes around his backhand to hit powerful forehands.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Marcos Baghdatis’ main strengths was the backhand and the return. With these two shots, he made on average the same ratio of points as his rivals but 30% fewer errors. These results showed well that his game style was mainly between a Tempo player and a Counterpuncher (Retriever).

Offensive Player

Low

In total, only 10% of Marcos Baghdatis’ points were won at the net and this result was below the average of the ATP players. His rivals made more than the double of points with their volleys and as a result he could not be regarded as an Offensive player.

Retriever

Medium-high

In total, 44% of Marcos Baghdatis’ points were won by the errors of his rivals and this result stand in the average. As said previously, he made fewer errors with the return & the backhand and it turned out that he also made fewer errors with the forehand.
