Mackenzie McDonald's Game Style

Server

Low

The shot with which Mackenzie McDonald is the most dominated by his rivals is the serve. This first & second serve effectiveness are below average and on average he makes 40% less aces/service winners than his rivals.

Puncher

High

Mackenzie McDonald is a dominating Puncher. It means that his game style turns around his effective forehand. The biggest edge he gets against his rivals is by making on average 50% more points with that shot than them.

Tempo Player

High

Playing close to the baseline with pace, Mackenzie McDonald is also a good Tempo player. The backhand & the return get results in the average or above because he is comfortable taking the ball on the rise or counterpunching. Besides, the way he plays the Punching forehand is also with Tempo which means that he plays that shot rather flat and close to the baseline.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

20% of Mackenie McDonald's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this results stand above the general average of the ATP players. The forehand & the backhand approach are really effective giving him a lot of free points. We can also say that the forehand & backhand approach are better than the quality of his volley.

Retriever

Medium

Being fast around the court and a good counterpuncher, Mackenzie McDonald also wins 45% of the points by the errors of the rivals (just above average). That doesn't make him a Retriever but he is capable of defend when he has to.
