Alex de Minaur's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Alex de Minaur isn't a Server because his ratio of aces/service winners is below average (28%). Nonetheless, being excellent from the back of the court, his Serve still gives him extra points here and there.

Puncher

Medium

When he has time, Alex de Minaur behaves like a flat Puncher with the forehand. He likes to run around the backhand to hit forehands but he doesn't win enough points with this shot to be regarded as a real Puncher.

Tempo Player

Medium

The way Alex de Minaur Retrieves is in Tempo (Counterpuncher). Otherwise, he can't really be regarded as a Tempo player because he makes on average less points with the return, forehand & backhand than his opponents. A Tempo player would be much more agressive with these shots or at least two out of three.

Offensive Player

Medium

13% of Alex de Minaur's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands in the general average of the ATP players. It means that he knows when he has to come in to get an edge but doesn't move forward enough to be regarded as an Offensive player.

Retriever

Very high

Winning 52% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Alex de Minaur is a dominant Retriever. You could also say that he is an excellent Counterpuncher because he plays rather close to his baseline and hits almost flat on both sides. Another skill that makes him a really good defender is his quickness around the court and fighting spirit.
