Tony Roche's Game Style

Server

High

As a serve & volleyer, Tony Roche could also count on an effective first serve. He had a high first serve percentage (68%) and when that first serve was in, 29% of the time it was unreturned. When compared with his rivals, he made on average 60% more aces/service winners than them.

Puncher

High

Tony Roche didn't play enough baseline rallies (as did most of his rivals) to really represent the Punchers. When compared with his rivals, he got worst results with the forehand and the Backhand than them.

Tempo Player

Very low

At the time of Rod Laver and the other Australian stars, the Tempo players didn't really exist. It was all about serving & volleying and from the back of the court they had much more a Punching technique than a Tempo one. The take backs were rather big and the two-handed backhand (trademark of the Tempo players) weren't often used.

Offensive Player

Very high

Tony Roche was a serve & volleyer (Offensive), and 63% of his total points were won playing that game style. The other net approach (1-2 punch, baseline approach & chip & charge) weren't really played (1% of his total points won). At the net his ratio points/errors with the volley was excellent (77%).

Retriever

Very low

Only 29% of Tony Roche's points were won by the errors of his rival. His goal was to charge the net and he never really waited for his rivals to make mistakes.
