Guillermo Canas' Game Style

Server

Medium

Guillermo Canas' Serve results stand in the average of the ATP players and for a Retriever that was an edge. It meant that he could also count on this shot to get free points.

Puncher

Medium

Guillermo Canas was more a Retriever than a Puncher but he could also win points with the topspin forehand. In total, 16% of his points were won with the forehand (in the average) and his favorite direction to attack was the inside in.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Guillermo Canas could play the backhand rather close to the baseline in Tempo but this shot was much more played in a Retrieving than an aggressive way. Tempo players get much more points with their return and backhand than Guillermo Canas did.

Offensive Player

Medium

Even though Guillermo Canas was more a defensive than an Offensive player, he was very effective when he came in (75% of the points won). In total, 14% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this results stand in the average of the ATP players.

Retriever

High

Guillermo Canas was a dominant Retriever. 50% of his points were won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. As a tremendous fighter, he made on average two times less errors with the forehand & the backhand than his rivals.
