Ilya Ivashka's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Ilya Ivashka's ratio of aces/service winners is just above average (37%) but he still makes on average 30% less points with the serve than his rivals. This is explained by his return position close to the baseline which helps his opponents to increase their serve effectiveness against him. So, for the moment Illya Ivashka is a good Server which is dominated by the rivals with that shot.

Puncher

Medium

Ilya Ivashka wins more points with the forehand (16%) than with the backhand (8%). It means that besides being a Tempo player he is also a flat Puncher on the forehand side. However, for the moment, his flat Punch is not that effective and this is because of a high ratio of errors (20% more than his rivals for the same ratio of points on average).

Tempo Player

High

Playing close to the baseline with pace, Ilya Ivashka is a dominating Tempo player. His forehand & backhand are hit almost flat with no margin above the net. Like most of the Tempo players, his return position is also close to the baseline.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

18% of Ilya Ivashka's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands just above the general average of the ATP players. When compared with his opponents, he gets his biggest edge by making 50% more with the volley than them.

Retriever

Medium

It also happens during the baseline rallies that Ilya Ivashka plays in Tempo until he or his rivals make the point or the error. Like that, he Retrieves with pace too and 45% of his points are won by the errors of his opponents (above average).
