Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court, Taylor Fritz is a Tempo Player. Playing close to his baseline he constantly puts pace. His game style is to take the ball on the rise and to generate pace to the majority of his shots.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Low

Taylor Fritz cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. His volley numbers are far below average and he prefers extending the baseline rallies than to come to the net. In total only 8% of his total points are won at the net and this number is far below average.

Retriever

Medium-low

Taylor Fritz is more an aggressive player than a Retriever. He plays fewer rallies over 5 shots than the ATP average (30%). However, injecting pace with his forehand & backhand also forces his opponents into making unforced errors and in total 42% of his points are won by their errors (in the average).
