Pierre-Hugues Herbert's Game Style

Server

High

Pierre-Hugue Herbert can also count on an effective Serve. He makes on average 30% more poitns with this shot than his rivals and when his first serve is in, 47% of the time it is unreturned and this result stands above the general average of the ATP players.

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Pierre-Hugue Herbert can be regarded as a Puncher. His goal is not to play long rallies but more to come in with the forehand approach when he has a chance. In his case we can say that he is an Offensive / Puncher because his forehand becomes really effective when he follows this shot to the net.

Tempo Player

Low

Pierre-Hugue Herbert cannot be qualified as a Tempo player. He is not so comfortable when he has to take the ball on the rise close to his baseline and this is mainly due to his big forehand take back. As the Tempo player, he is aggressive with the return but this is more in a Punching way with his forehand and in Tempo.

Offensive Player

Very high

Pierre-Hugue Herbert is a dominant Offensive player who makes on average 3 times more points with the volley than his rivals. He used to be a Server & Volleyer but nowadays he varies much more his ways to move forward: 1-2 punch right after the serve & baseline approach. At the net he possesses an excellent hand missing only 28% of his volleys.

Retriever

Very low

Pierre-Hugue Herbert is far too Offensive to te be regarded as a Retriever at all. In total, he wins 28% of his points by the errors of his rivals ( and this result is far below average.
