Kyle Edmund's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Besides Punching with the forehand, Kyle Edmund also possesses an effective Serve. When that first serve is in, 34% of the time it is unreturned and that helps him to make 10% more aces/service winners than his rivals. Kyle Edmund can count on the two most effective shots on tour: serve and forehand.

Puncher

High

Kyle Edmund is a dominant Puncher. When compared with his rivals he makes on average 40% more points with his topspin forehand. His ratio of points is high in every direction but this is right after his serve that he is the most dangerous with this shot.

Tempo Player

Medium

Besides Punching with the forehand, Kyle Edmund can also plays in Tempo with his backhand. His ratio of points with his backhand is just above the average of the ATP players and that makes him an aggressive baseliner.

Offensive Player

Medium

Kyle Edmund's percentage and total of points won at the net is in the average. He knows when he has to follow his forehand or backhand to the net to get an edge but he still cannot be regarded as a true Offensive player.

Retriever

Medium-low

As a complete player Kyle Edmund can also Retrieve. Nonetheless, he is more a Puncher or a Tempo player taking risks from the back of the court than a Retriever. In total, 39% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this is just below average.
