Jared Donaldson's Game Style

Server

Medium

Jared Donaldson can count on a good Serve but he will still more likely win his matches from the back of the court than with this shot. However, opting for a risky first serve, this shot gives him free points on a regular basis.

Puncher

Medium-low

Jared Donaldson is more a Tempo player than a Puncher because he can struggle a bit when he has to accelerate several balls in a row with the forehand. He prefers the pace and plays also flatter than the real Punchers.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Jared Donaldson can be regarded as a Tempo player because his best shot is the backhand. He is really effective on that side because he can play close to the baseline and take the ball on the rise to be aggressive. This is the trademark of the Tempo players.

Offensive Player

Low

Jared Donaldson cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because only 9% of his points are won at the net. He generally prefers to extend the baseline rallies than to come in.

Retriever

Medium-high

Jared Donaldson's game style is between a Tempo player and a Retriever. It means that he generates pace on both side close to the baseline but also wears his rivals down by putting back in play a lot of balls. As a result, he is also a good counterpuncher.
