Robin Haase's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Event though Robin Haase cannot be regarded as a dominant Server, the shot with which he takes his biggest edge against his rivals is still the Serve. He makes on average 30% more aces / service winners than them and when his first serve is in it is unreturned 39% of the time.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Robin Haas game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever. He is capable of Punching his forehand and win points this way but when this shot is compared with the one of his rivals, he takes an edge by making 30% less errors than them. A true Puncher would average a better ratio of forehand points.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Robin Haas can take the ball on the rise close to the baseline with his backhand but this shot is not effective enough to represent the Tempo players. He is much more a Puncher/Retriever from the back of the court than a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Robin Haas knows perfectly when to come in to get an edge (Offensive). His percentage of points won at the net is high (73%) and his hand is good only missing 20% of his volleys. He can vary all kind of net approaches but his favorite remain the 1-2 punch right after his serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Medium-high

42% of Robin Haase's points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result stand in the average of the ATP players. We cannot say that he is a Retriever because his ratio of backhand errors is 30% higher than the one of his opponents but he still gets a big edge making less errors with the forehand than them. He is more a player with a high tennis IQ who knows how to play tactically to get the best out of his game.
