Todd Martin's Game Style

Server

Very high

Todd Martin could also count on a very effective Serve. In comparison with his rivals, it was the second shot that gave him his biggest edge. When his first serve was in, 44% of the time it was an ace or a service winner and this result stands above the average of the ATP players.

Puncher

Very high

Todd Martin was more a Tempo player than a Puncher and this was explained by his court position close to the baseline, the way he hit the ball (rather flat) and the return effectiveness. Punchers get much more points with the forehand than him and often play with heavy topspin.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Todd Martin was a Tempo player. Taking the ball on the rise and hitting flat, he could win points with his return & backhand. His return was really effective but when the baseline rallies started the rivals got better results than his with the backhand and slow with the forehand.

Offensive Player

Very high

Playing the serve & volley most of the time, Todd Martin was a dominating Offensive player. On the return games and from the back of the court, he came in as soon as he had a chance and that explains why 79% of his rallies were played below five shots.

Retriever

Very low

Winning only 28% of his points by the errors of the rivals, Todd Martin wasn't a Retriever at all. He never counted on his rivals mistakes to win a match.
