Radu Albot's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Very low

Opting for a high first serve percentage, Radu Albot is nothing but a Server. His ratio of aces/service winners is very low (15%) and even when he wins a match his rivals make on average more points with the serve than him.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

The way Radu Albot Retrieves is with Punch. It means that he uses his topspin forehand to wear his rivals down but also to win points by his own actions. The forehand is by far his best shot in comparison with his opponents making on average the same ratio of points but 30% less errors than them.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Radu Albot can play close to his baseline when he has to but he cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. He mainly plays in pace that when he has to counterpunch and as a consequence his ratio of points with the backhand & the return is below average.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium

Radu Albot cannot be regarded as an Offensive Player but lately he developped this part of his game and in total 18% of his points are won at the net. It means that he is not only a defensive player and he knows when he has to use the forehand approach to get an edge.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Very high

Radu Albot is a dominant Retriever winning 55% of his points by the errors of his rivals (far above average). Fast around the court, his main game plan is to wear his opponents down and forces them to miss more.
