Dominik Koepfer's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium-low

Dominik Koepfer cannot be regarded as a Server. He makes on average 25% fewer aces/service winners than his opponents and this is with this shot that he is the most dominated by them. When his first serve lands in, 29% of the time it is unreturned and this number is below the general average of the ATP players.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-low

From the back of the court, Dominik Koepfer is more a Tempo Player than a Puncher. He makes fewer winners/forcing errors with the forehand than the ATP average.

Tempo Player

High

Dominik Koepfer is a dominant Tempo Player. It means that his backhand is his main strengths. He dominates his opponents by making more winners/forcing errors than them with the backhand. This shot is often taken on the rise close to the baseline which is the trademark of the Tempo Players.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Even though Dominik Koepfer cannot be regarded as an Offensive Player, 17% of his points are still won at the net (with or without a volley to play). His favourite and most effective way to come to the net is the 1-2 punch approach right after his serve.

Medium-high

Dominik Koepfer wins more points than the ATP average by the errors of his opponents (45%). However, he is more a Tempo player who wants to dictate the rallies with his pace than a more defensive player who wears his rivals down.
