Daniil Medvedev's Game Style

Server

Medium

Daniil Medvedev can count on an effective first Serve. When that first serve is in 35% of the time it is unreturned and he takes an ege by making on average 20% more aces/service winners than his rivals.

Puncher

Medium-low

Daniil Medvedev's flat forehand is more played in Tempo than with Punch. This shot lacks topspin to be really effective but by often taking the ball on the rise he can get some points especially down the line. However, his rivals get an edge against him by making on average 20% more points with the forehand.

Tempo Player

High

Daniil Medvedev's game style is between a Tempo player and a Retriever. It means that he plays flat close to the baseline and is capable of generating but also absorbing the pace. As most of the Tempo players, his best shot is his backhand. He gets an edge with that shot against his rivals making on average 70% more points than them.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Daniil Medvedev is developing his Offensive side by coming in more often. However, that doesn't make him an Offensive player for the moment but he knows when to move forward to get an edge.

Retriever

High

16% of Daniil Medvedev's rallyes are over 8 shots and this result is above the average of the ATP players. Besides being a good Tempo player, he is also a good Retriever (more Counterpuncher in his case) who doesn't mind extending the baseline rallies.
