Jay Berger's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium-low

Jay Berger could not be regarded as a Server because his first & second serve ratio of unreturned were below average. He won his matches from the back of the court or at the net but not thanks to aces or service winners.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-low

Jay Berger was more a Tempo player than a Puncher because of his court position close to the baseline, his rather flat shots and the risk he took with the backhand & return. The Punchers mainly dominates their rivals with the quality of their topspin forehand and he could struggle a bit when he had to accelerate serveral balls in a row (high ratio of errors).

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Very high

Jay Berger was a dominant Tempo player. Playing rather flat and taking the ball on the rise as soon as he had a chance, he made on average more points than his rivals with the return, the backhand and also the forehand.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

High

Jay Berger could not be qualified of an Offensive player but he still won 33% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result was above average. His game plan was to play in Tempo from the back of the court and come in with the forheand or backhand approach when he had a chance. He could also mix things up with a couple of serve & volley.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium-high

Jay Berger was not only a Tempo player, he could aslo Retrieve. In total, 39% of his points were won by the errors of the rivals which stands in the average of the ATP players. As the Retrievers, he played more points than average in the medium & long rallies (over 5 shots, 46%).
