Brad Gilbert's Game Style

Server

Low

Brad Gilbert could not be regarded as a Server because all his Serve's stats results were below average. He really made the difference from the back of the court or at the net.

Puncher

Low

From the back of the court, Brad Gilbert's game style was a mix of Punch, Retrieve and Tempo. From the Punch he had the forehand down the line that he really used in an effective way for his approaches.

Tempo Player

Medium

From the back of the court, Brad Gilbert's game style was a mix of Punch, Retrieve and Tempo. From the Tempo he had his court position close to the baseline and his flat shots. On the forehand side, he often took the ball on the rise to get an edge against his rivals.

Offensive Player

High

Brad Gilbert could be regarded as an Offensive player because 33% of his total points were won at the net. It was part of his strategy to vary all kind of net approach (serve & volley, 1-2 punch, baseline approach and chip & charge) and he had a good hand at the net missing only 26% of his volleys.

Retriever

Medium

From the back of the court, Brad Gilbert's game style was a mix of Punch, Retrieve and Tempo. From the Retrieve he had the backhand slice that he used to extend the baseline rallies and wear his rivals down.
