Philipp Kohlschreiber's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Despite his size Philipp Kohlschreiber also possess a very effective Serve. He is actually one of the best Server on tour who is below 5'10''/180cm. His first serve percentage & ratio of unreturned is high (64%/36%) and that gives him a precious edge against his rivals.

Puncher

High

Philipp Kohlschreiber is a dominant Puncher on both sides. It means that from the back of the court he can be aggressive with the topspin forehand but also backhand. However, this is on his service games that he is the most effective with these two shots.

Tempo Player

Low

Philipp Kohlschreiber is much more a Puncher than a Tempo player because of his topspin shots. Tempo players hit the ball closer to their baseline and also flatter than him. Most of the time they have a two-handed backhand too.

Offensive Player

Medium

In Philipp Kohlschreiber's case the Offensive comes to complete his Punch and he gets really good results this way: high ratio of points won at the net with the 1-2 punch (73%) & the baseline approach (77%). He also possess a good hand at the net missing only 26% of his volleys.

Retriever

Medium-low

As a complete player Philipp Kohlschreiber can also Retrieve. Nonetheless he is more a Puncher taking risks than a Retriever and in total 38% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals (just below average).
