Roberto Bautista Agut's Game Style

Server

Low

The shot with which Roberto Bautista-Agut is the most dominated by his rivals is the Serve. He makes on average 30% les aces/service winners than them and he rarely wins a match thanks to the quality of this shot. However, he still can get a couple of free points here and there with the Serve (22% of first serve unreturned).

Puncher

High

Roberto Bautista-Agut's game style is a mix between a dominant Puncher & a Retriever. In total, 25% of his points are won with the forehand and this is above the general average of the ATP players. He can be dangerous with the Punching forehand in any directions and at any time in the rally.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Roberto Bautista-Agut can't be regarded as a Tempo player but he can play with pace rather flat close to the baseline when needed. However, as soon as he has a chance he runs around the backhand to hit his forehand as a Puncher. As a consequence the ratio of points with the backhand is is much lower than a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium

Roberto Bautista-Agut also developed an Offensive side to his game. When he has a chance, he can follow his big forehand to the net. In total, 16% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands in the average.

Retriever

High

Besides making points with the forehand, Bautista-Agut uses this shot to wear the rivals' backhand down. He can be patient, extend the baseline rallies and force his opponents into making extra errors (Retriever). His defensive skills are also top class: touch ball when moving forward & passing-shots.
