Gaston Gaudio's Game Style

Server

Low

Gaston Gaudio was not a Server at all but when compared with his opponents he still managed to make on average the same ratio of aces/service winners as them. However, he got that kind of results only because he was a clay court specialist where the Serves were less effective and because his return position was defensive.

Puncher

Low

Gaston Gaudio was a dominant Puncher. He could win points with his topspin forehand or his single-handed backhand. The danger could come at any time in the rally on both side and that made him a very complete baseliner.

Tempo Player

Low

As a clay court specialist and having a single-handed backhand, Gaston Gaudio was nothing but a Tempo player. The Tempo players take the ball on the rise and are really effective with the flat backhand that they play with two hands.

Offensive Player

Medium

Gaston Gaudio could not be regarded as an Offensive player but he was very effective when he came to the net (74% of points won). In total, 14% of his points won were at the net (in the average). His favorite way to move forward was with the forehand or the backhand approach during a baseline rally.

Retriever

High

As a clay court specialist, Gaston Gaudio could Punch but also Retrieve and extend the baseline rallies. 49% of his points were won by the unforced errors of his opponents and this number stand above the general average of the ATP Legends.
