Matthew Ebden's Game Style

Server

Medium

Matthew Ebden's Serve is not a strengths or a weakness, he gets results in the average of the ATP players. It means that he will take an edge with that shot against the least effective servers but he will be dominated against the best servers on tour.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Matthew Ebden uses his Punching Forehand to attack. He is really effective when he plays the forehand approach and we can say that he is a Puncher/Offensive.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

The way Matthew Ebden hits the backhand is with Tempo close to the baseline. However, he doesn't win enough points on that side (or with the return) to be regarded as a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

High

Winning 25% of his total points at the net Matthew Ebden can be regarded as an Offensive player. He varies well all kind of net approach: serve & volley, 1-2 punch, baseline approach & return volley. From the back of the court, this is mainly with the Punching forehand that he comes in.

Retriever

Medium

Matthew Ebden is not only attacking from the back of the court, he can also Retrieve and extend the baseline rallies. When his forehand & backhand are compared with the one of his rivals, he makes on average slightly less points & errors than them.
