Malek Jaziri's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

When compared with his rivals, Malek Jaziri is the most dominated with his Serve. He makes on average 40% fewer aces/service winners than them and when his first serve is in, 30% of the times it is unreturned (just below average). Opting for a return position close to his baseline, he also helps his rivals into making more aces/service winners.

Puncher

High

Malek Jaziri can be regarded as a dominant Puncher. His ratio of forehand point is high in every single direction: cross, down the line, inside out / inside in. However, this is on his service game that he is the most effective with his topspin forehand, especially when he follows that shot to the net.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Malek Jaziri is more a Puncher than a Tempo player. However, he can play close to his baseline and be aggressive with his return like a Tempo player. What is missing to be a real Tempo player is the backhand attacks. The backhand is more used to Retrieve than to attack and his ratio of points on that side is low.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Malek Jaziri can be qualified as a Puncher / Offensive. It means that this is when he follows his forehand to the net that he is the most dangerous. In total, 19% of his points are won at the net and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. His favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch right after his serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Medium-high

Malek Jaziri is not only capable of attacking, he also takes an edge against his rivals by making 20% fewer errors with his backhand than them. The way he plays his backhand slice is mainly by Retrieving and he also uses his forehand to wear his rivals down on their backhand.
