Andres Gomez' Game Style

Server

Medium

For a clay court specialist, Andres Gomez had an excellent serve and he made on average 2.5 more aces/service winners than his rivals. This was with his serve and his volley that he made the difference in his matches and that makes him a very interesting clay court player. However, when his serve results were compared with the general average there were only in the average and not above.

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Andres Gomez was a Puncher. However, when compared with his rivals, the quality of his topspin forehand & backhand were not as good as them. This is really when he moved forward that he was dangerous.

Tempo Player

Low

Playing with topspin on both side, Andres Gomez can't be regarded as a Tempo player. Tempo players play close to the baseline and take the ball on the rise. He was so talented that he could do that from time but it wasn't his trademark at all.

Offensive Player

High

Although Andres Gomez was a clay court specialist, he was a dominant Offensive player. In total 37% of his points were won at the net and this result is above average. He could play the serve & volley, the 1-2 puncher approach or the baseline approach. At the net, he had an excellent hand and misses only a few volleys (16%).

Retriever

Medium-low

Only 33% of Andres Gomez' points were won by the errors of his rivals and this was below average. His game plan wasn't to wear his rivals down but to take initiative and be Offensive.
