Pablo Cuevas' Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium

For a clay court specialist, Pablo Cuevas can count on an effective Serve. Against some solid baseliners, he can take a precious edge by making more aces/service winner than them.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

As a clay court specialist, Pablo Cuevas is a dominant Puncher. He makes on average more points with his topspin forehand & backhand than his rivals. However, this is really with the forehand that he can dangerous from the back of the court, especially with the inside out & the inside out.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Low

Playing with topspin on both side, Pablo Cuevas is not a Tempo player at all. Tempo players hit flatter and closer to the baseline than him.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Pablo Cuevas can't 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.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium-high

Even though Pablo Cuevas is more a Puncher than a Retriever, he can also extend the baseline rallies and be effective this way. He has the double advantage with the forehand making on average more points (Puncher) but also less errors (Retriever) than his opponents. In total 45% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this is above the general average of the ATP players.
