Greg Rusedski's Game Style

Server

Very high

Possessing a huge Serve, Greg Rusedski was a dominating Server. When compared with the rivals, he made on average 30% more aces/service winners than them. The Serve was by far his best shot and he optimized his game around it by playing most of the time the serve & volley.

Puncher

Very high

Greg Rusedski didn't spend enough time form the back of the court to be regarded as a Puncher with a big forehand. Only 11% of his points were won with that shot (far below average) and these points were mainly won with forehand pass.

Tempo Player

Very low

With a single-handed backhand and using the slice a lot, Greg Rusedski was anything but a Tempo player. This kind of player is really effective with the backhand and return that they take on the rise close to the baseline.

Offensive Player

Very high

Playing the serve & volley most of the time, Greg Rusedski wasn't only a Server he also was an Offensive player. In total 52% of his points were won when he played the serve & volley and this result stands far above the general average of the ATP players. Otherwise, as soon as he had a chance on his return game he would come in from the back of the court.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 29% of his points by the errors of the rivals, Greg Rusedski wasn't a Retriever at all. Nontheless, when he was forced to stay in the back of the court, he could Retrieve a couple of balls but we can't say that he was really effective.
