Daniel Evans' Game Style

Server

Medium-low

When compared with his rivals, Daniel Evans is the most dominated with his Serve. He makes on average 30% fewer aces/service winners than them and when his first serve is in, 29% of the times it is unreturned (below average).

Puncher

High

Daniel Evans can be regarded as a dominant Puncher. When compared with his rivals, he takes his biggest edge by making on average 20% more points than them. This is with the forehand down the line that he is the most dangerous, he often uses that direction to come in.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Daniel Evans' forehand is so effective that he can also sometimes take the ball on the rise like a Tempo player. However, because of his single-handed backhand he is much more a Puncher than a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

High

Besides being a Puncher, Daniel Evans also possesses an Offensive side. His best combination of shots is the forehand followed to the net (1-2 punch or baseline approach). We can say that he is a Puncher / Offensive and as a result 21% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play).

Retriever

Medium

Daniel Evans is not only capable of attacking with the forehand, he also takes an edge against his rivals by making 15% fewer errors with this shot. Besides, the way he plays the backhand slice is mainly by Retrieving.
