John Millman's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Low

Even though 26% of his first serve in are aces or service winners, John Millman can't be regarded as a Server. He is often dominated in a match with that shot against his rivals and has to counterbalance this with the consistency of his baseline game.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-low

John Millman can't be regarded as a Puncher because the ratio of points won with the forehand is below average. Playing rather close to the baseline with pace, he is much more a Tempo Player or a Retriever than a Puncher.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Playing close to the baseline with pace, John Millman is not only a Retriever but also a Tempo player. As a consequence, his backhand is his best shot because he is capable to take the ball on the rise or to counterpunch on that side.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Low

Only 7% of John Millman's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is by far not enough to be regarded as an Offensive player. Even when he comes in the percentage of points won is only in the average and not above (like the majority of players who doesn't move forward a lot).

Retriever.png

Retriever

Very high

John Millman is a Retriever who wins 53% of his points forcing the errors of his rivals (far above the average of the ATP players). When compared with his opponents, he makes on average less errors with every possible shots: serve, return, forehand, backhand & volley. The way John Millman Retrieves is with pace close to the baseline, his game style is the one of a counterpuncher.
