Puncher

High

He can be dangerous on that side in any directions and at any time in the rallies. In total, 29% of his points are won with the forehand and this result is far above the general average of the ATP players.

Tempo Player

Medium

Offensive Player

Medium

Thomas Fabbiano senses well when he has to come in with his forehand to get an edge and he wins 76% when moving forward. In total, 15% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands in the average of the ATP players

Retriever

Medium-high

However, he does not get an edge against his rivals by making fewer errors than them, he just ties with them in that regard. In total, 47% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above average.
