Aljaz Bedene's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

For a clay court specialist, Aljaz Bedene can count on a very effective Serve. When compared with his rivals he makes on average 20% more aces/service winners and this is where he takes his biggest edge against them.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Aljaz Bedene's game style is between a dominant Puncher and a dominant Retriever. He really mixes well these two categories. From the Puncher side he has the topspin forehand with a high ratio of points. In total, 22% of his points are won with the forehand and this result is above the general average of the ATP players.

Tempo Player

Low

Aljaz Bedene is not a Tempo player at all. Unlike this kind of player he is not aggressive with his backhand & return and does not play close to his baseline.

Offensive Player

Low

Aljaz Bedene cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. Only 10% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below the average of the ATP players. He generally prefers to dictate the rallies with his forehand than to come in.

Retriever

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Aljaz Bedene's game style is between a dominant Puncher and a dominant Retriever. He really mixes well these two categories. From the Retriever side he has the global consistency. His topspin forehand is not only used to attack but also to wear his rivals' backhand down. In total, 45% of his points are won by the errors of his opponents and this result is above average.
