Robin Soderling's Game Style

Server

High

As said previously, Robin Soderling could also count on an effective Serve. When that first serve was in, 43% of the time it was unreturned and this result was above the general average of the ATP players. He had this "modern" combo combining a big serve to an effective forehand and that was his main strengths.

Puncher

High

Robin Soderling was a dominant Puncher. His main weapon was his topspin forehand and when compared with his rivals he made on average 60% more points than them with this shot. It was right after his serve that his forehand was the most effective.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

On the forehand side, Robin Soderling was a Puncher but on the backhand side he was much more of a Tempo player. The big forehand take back prevented him from taking the ball on the rise with the forehand but not with the backhand. He made on average 40% more points with the backhand and 2 times more points with the return and this kind of results are the trademark of the Tempo players.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Robin Soderling was much more a powerful player (serve + forehand) than an Offensive one. Only 10% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result was below average. His most effective offensive game plan was the 1-2 punch forehand approach right after his serve (72% of the points won).

Retriever

Low

Winning only 34% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Robin Soderling was far too powerful & aggressive to count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
