Thomaz Bellucci's Game Style

Server

High

Besides his Punching forehand Thomaz Bellucci can also count on a second good shot: his Serve. He makes on average 20% more aces/service winners than his rivals and when his first serve is in 39% of the time it is unreturned.

Puncher

High

Thomaz Bellucci is a dominant Puncher. From the back of the court, this is with his topspin forehand than he takes his biggest edge against his rivals making on average 30% more points than them with this shot.

Tempo Player

Low

Thomaz Bellucci cannot be regarded as a Tempo player because the way he plays the backhand is more with topspin (Puncher) than taking the ball on the rise. Besides, his backhand & return results are below the average of the ATP players.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Thomaz Bellucci cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. Nonetheless, when he has a chance he can follow his big forehand to the net (1-2 punch approach or baseline approach).

Retriever

Medium

As a clay court specialist, Thomaz Bellucci can also Retrieve and extend the baseline rallies. However, he is better when he attacks (Puncher) than when he defends (Retriever) and in the rallies over 5 shots he wins on average less points than his rivals (48%).
