Attila Balazs' Game Style

Server

Low

Attila Balazs cannot be regarded as a Server at all. He makes on average 10% fewer aces/service winners and 4 times more double faults than his opponents. When compared with them, this is the shot he is the most dominated. However, if we remove this low ratio of aces/service winners on first serve and this high ratio of double faults on second serve, the quality of his game right after his serve is above average.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Attila Balazs' game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever. From the Puncher side, he has the topspin forehand and backhand attacks. He can really counts on these two shots to hurt this opponents when the baseline rallies start.

Tempo Player

Low

Even though Attila Balazs wins more points than the ATP average with his Backhand, he cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. He hits his backhand with topspin (or slice) and we cannot say that he takes the ball on the rise like the Tempo player do. In other words, he has more a Puncher than a Tempo backhand.

Offensive Player

Medium

Attila Balazs gets results in the average at the net (68% of the points won & 12% of his total points won at the net). He knows when he has to come in to take an edge but cannot be qualified as an Offensive player too.

Retriever

High

From the back of the court, Attila Balazs' game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever. Winning 50% of his points by the errors of his opponents (above average), this is part of his game style to wear them down. As a complete Retriever, he also posses a good hand for drop shots or well placed slices.
