Hubert Hurkacz's Game Style

Server

High

When compared with his opponents, the shot which gives Hubert Hurkacz the biggest edge is the Serve. He makes on average 30% more aces/service winners than his rivals and in that regard he can be regarded as a Server. However, for the moment the first serve effectiveness and the first serve won points should be improved to represent 100% this Profile.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Hubert Hurkacz is a flat Puncher. 21% of his points are won with the forehand which is above the general average of the ATP players. However, for the moment he still makes too many unforced errors with the forehand to be really an effective Puncher.

Tempo Player

Meidum-high

Hubert Hurkacz is not only attacking with the serve & the forehand, he also takes risks with the backhand and the return like most of the Tempo players. His position close to the baseline and the was he hits the ball (rather flat) is like the Tempo players too.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

18% of Hubert Hurkacz's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is just above the average of the ATP players. So he is capable of adding an Offensive side to his game, especially on the first short after his big serve (1-2 punch approach).

Retriever

Medium

Even though Hubert Hurkacz can't be regarded as a Retriever, 40% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals (in the average) and 14% of his rallies are played over 8 shots (in the average too). It means that he is not afraid of extending the baseline rallies when he has to.
