Marcos Giron's Game Style

Server

Low

Marcos Giron cannot be regarded as a Server at all. His ratio of aces/service winners on first serve is below the ATP average (24%) and his ratio of double faults is above (12%). When compared with his opponents, this is with the serve that he is the most dominated.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Marcos Giron's game style is between a dominant Retriever and a Puncher. From the Puncher's side, he has the forehand attacks. Being more a defensive than an aggressive player, he still manages to get a ratio of forehand winners / forcing errors in the average which complete really well his Retriever's side.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Marcos Giron cannot be regarded as a Tempo player because he is too defensive and likes to run around his backhand to hit forehands. Usually, Tempo players are much more aggressive than him with their backhand and also their return.

Offensive Player

Medium

Marcos Giron is effective when he comes to the net (71% of the points won) but he cannot be regarded as an Offensive player too. His most effective way to come to the net is the baseline approach.

Retriever

High

Winning 55% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Marcos Giron is a dominant Retriever. His main weapon is his forehand and he uses that shot to attack (as seen previously in the Puncher section) but also to wear his opponents' backhand down.
