Damir Dzumhur's Game Style

Server

Low

When compared with his rivals, this is with the Serve that Damir Dzumhur is the most dominated. His ratio of unreturned first serve is far below average (16%) and he cannot rely on this shot to win a match.

Puncher

Low

Damir Dzumhur can't be regarded as a Puncher because he does not dominate his rivals with the quality of his topspin forehand. He is much more a Counterpuncher or an Offensive player than a Puncher.

Tempo Player

Medium

As a Counterpuncher, Damir Dzumhur is excellent with his backhand and his return that he takes on the rise close to the baseline. After the volley, this is with these two shots that he takes his biggest edge against his rivals.

Offensive Player

High

Damir Dzumhur is a very interesting player because he mixes perfectly defensive & offensive game style. He Retrieves almost as much as he comes in and in total 25% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play). His favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch right after the serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

High

50% of Damir Dzumhur's points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. In his case, he is more a Counterpuncher absorbing the pace of his rivals and forcing them to miss more shots.
