Juan Monaco's Game Style

Server

Low

Juan Monaco didn't count on his serve to win a match. He was often dominated with that shot by his rivals and had to win his match from the back of the court.

Puncher

Low

Juan Monaco wasn't only a Retriever, he could also Punch with the forehand. In total 20% of his points were won with the forehand and this result was in the average of the ATP players. This was down the line that he was the most effective with the forehand.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

As a complete Retriever, Juan Monaco could also play with Tempo close to his baseline with his backhand. His counterpunching skills were really good and he could sometimes take the ball on the rise with the backhand to surprise his rivals.

Offensive Player

Low

Winning only 9% of his points at the net Juan Monaco wasn't an Offensive player at all. When compared with the other great Retrievers who reached top 10 we can say that this part was missing in his game.

Retriever

Very high

Winning 53% of his points by the errors of his rivals Juan Monaco was a dominant Retriever. As a clay court specialist, he made on average less errors than his rivals with every possible shots (serve, return, forehand, backhand & volley). To complete his Retrieving game style he could also pass or play with touch when moving forward.
