Gianluca Mager's Game Style

Server

High

When compared with his opponents, Gianluca Mager's best shot is his Serve. He managed to compile a high first serve percentage (64%) and a high ratio of aces/service winners (37%). As a result, his first serve won points is above the average of the ATP players (75%).

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Gianluca Mager's game style is between a Puncher and a Tempo player. From the Puncher side, he has the forehand attacks. However, he makes fewer winners / forcing errors with this shot than average and this is mainly explained because he doesn't run around his backhand as much as the other ATP players.

Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court, Gianluca Mager's game style is between a Puncher and a Tempo player. From the Tempo side, he has the backhand attacks close to his baseline. He makes on average more winners / forcing errors with his backhand than his rivals and it goes the same with his return. Given his forehand & backhand results, we can say that he is a better Tempo player than Puncher.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

This is part of Gianluca Mager's game style to come to the net when he has a chance. He mainly moves forward with his forehand but can also do it with his backhand. His powerful groundstrokes allowes him to get a high percentage of points won at the net or to play easier volleys at the net.

Retriever

Medium-low

Gianluca Mager cannot be regarded as a Retriever because his ratio of points won by the errors of his opponents is below average (37%). Being aggressive with all the possible shots, he doesn't count on his rivals' mistakes to win a match.
