Mardy Fish's Game Style

Server

High

Mardy Fish could be regarded as a dominant Server because the shot with which he took his biggest edge against his rivals was the Serve making on average 20% more aces/service winners than them. He went for a risky first serve with a low first serve percentage (55%) but when that serve was in 47% of the time it was unreturned.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Mardy Fish was more a Tempo player than a Puncher. He played flat rather close to his baseline and often took risks with his forehand & backhand. However, his global results with these two shots were below average.

Tempo Player

Medium

From the back of the court, Mardy Fish was more a Tempo player than a Puncher. He played flat rather close to his baseline and often took risks with his forehand & backhand. However, his global results with these two shots were below average.

Offensive Player

High

Besides being a good Server, Mardy Fish could also be an Offensive player. 24% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result was above the general average of the ATP players. He varied well all kind of net approach: serve & volley, 1-2 punch & baseline approach and a really good hand at the net missing only 26% of his volleys.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 34% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Mardy Fish was not a Retriever at all. He was too Offensive and aggressive to count on his opponents' mistakes to win a match.
