Server

Medium-high

Thanasi Kokkinakis can also count on an effective first serve. When that first serve is in, 40% of the time it is unreturned. With the forehand and the serve, he possesses the shots to become one day a top player.

Puncher

High

Thanasi Kokkinakis is a dominant Puncher. His main shot from the back of the court is the forehand. When compared with his rivals, this is with the forehand that he takes the biggest edge by making on average 20% more points than them.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

The way Thanasi Kokkinakis hits the backhand is with Tempo close to the baseline. However, he doesn't win enough points on that side (or with the return) to be regarded as a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium

12% of Thanasi Kokkinakis' total points won is at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this results stands in the general average of the ATP players. His favorite ways to come in is the 1-2 punch approach right after the serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Medium-low

Having a big serve and a big forehand, Thanasi Kokkinakis can't be regarded as a Retriever. Only 37% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals (below average) and he wins only 43% of the longs rallies (over 8 shots).
