Andrej Martin's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Low

As a clay court specialist, Andrej Martin does not count on his serve to win matches and as a result he cannot be regarded as a Server. His ratio of aces/service winners and his first serve won points are below the average of the ATP players.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-low

From the back of the court, Andrej Martin is more a Retriever than a Puncher. However, he wins on average the same ratio of points with his forehand than his rivals but this is more due to his forehand approaches (Offensive side).

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Andrej Martin cannot be regarded as a Tempo player because his ratio of points won with his backhand and return are below the average of the ATP players. Nonetheless, he is capable of counterpunching with ease fast balls coming on his backhand. We can say that as an eastern player he has Tempo roots but developed his game much more as a clay court specialist.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

High

When compared with his rivals, Andrej Martin’s best shot is the volley. He really possesses an Offensive side to his game which completes well his defensive skills. We can say that he is a Retriever / Offensive player who plays consistent from the back of the court but can also come in in many different ways.
