Leonardo Mayer's Game Style

Server

High

When compared with his rivals, this is with the Serve that Leonardo Mayer takes his biggest edge on average. When that first serve is in 42% of the time it is unreturned and this is above average.

Puncher

High

Leonardo Mayer is a dominant Puncher. This is with the topspin forehand that he dominates his rivals from the back of the court. However, his best forehand is the forehand approach right after his serve. He also Punches with the single-handed backhand but the results with this shot are below the average of the ATP players.

Tempo Player

Low

Leonardo Mayer can't be regarded as a Tempo player at all. Playing with topspin on both sides, he is not so effective taking the ball on the rise and as a consequence with the return and the backhand.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Leonardo Mayer's game style is often to follow his big forehand to the net (Offensive). In total 19% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and his favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch right after the serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 32% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Leonardo Mayer isn't a Retriever. He is too aggressive with the serve, the forehand and the volley to count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
