Gaston Gaudio's Game Style

Server

Low

Gaston Gaudio wasn't a Server at all but when compared with his rivals he still managed to make slightly more aces/service winners than them. This is only because he was good on clay where the Serves are less effective and because his return position was really defensive. Otherwise, his ratio of first serve unreturned was below average (19%).

Puncher

Low

Gaston Gaudio was a dominant Puncher. He could win points with the topspin forehand or the 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 couldn't be regarded as an Offensive player but he was very effective when he came in (73% of points won). In total, 12% of his points won were at the net (in the average). His favorite way to move forward was 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 errors of his rivals and this result stand above the general average of the ATP players.
