Richard Gasquet's Game Style

Server

Medium

Richard Gasquet's Serve stands in the average. This shot completes well his all-court game style and gives him an edge against the weaker Servers on the ATP tour.

Puncher

Medium

Richard Gasquet has the particularity to be a backhand puncher. His single-handed backhand is the most effective on the ATP tour and he wins more points with that shot than with his forehand. The difference between his backhand and a Tempo backhand is the amount of spin he puts and his baseline position which is rather far.

Tempo Player

Low

Playing rather far from the baseline & possessing a single-handed backhand that he Punches, Richard Gasquet is not a Tempo player at all. He also opts for a consistent return instead of an aggressive one which is the trademark of the Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

When he has a chance, Richard Gasquet often comes in and he is very good at that. He varies well all kind of net approach (serve & volley, 1-2 punch approach, baseline approach & return volley) and 17% of his points are won at the net. However, this percentage is not enough to be regarded 100% an Offensive player.

Retriever

High

Richard Gasquet's game style is a mix of Retrieve, Offensive & Punch. However, he often starts the point by being solid and Retrieve. He doesn't make a great amount of errors with the forehand and the backhand. But we can't say that he is wearing his opponents down because only 42% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals.
