Marco Cecchinato's ratio of first serve unreturned is below average (22%) but this is mainly because he is a clay court specialist. When compared with his rivals, he gets an edge with his Serve making on average 30% more aces/service winners than them.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court Marco Cecchinato can be regarded as a dominant Puncher. He makes points with the topspin forehand and the single-handed backhand. However, as we will see his game style is more than just a Puncher.

Tempo Player

Low

Marco Cecchinato is not a Tempo player at all. Unlike this kind of player, he does not take the ball on the rise close to his baseline and his return position is far away from the baseline.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

As a complete player, Marco Cecchinato can also count on an Offensive side. 17% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is above average. He mainly uses his Punching forehand to move forward. Besides being a Puncher / Retriever he is a Puncher / Offensive too. Another Offensive side that Marco Cecchinato developped is the drop shot.

Retriever

Medium-low

Besides Punching, Marco Cecchinato as a clay court specialist can also Retrieve. He takes an edge against his rivals by making 30% less errors than them with the backhand and this is a Retriever kind of results.
