Thiago Monteiro's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

When compared with his rivals, Thiago Monteiro is dominated with the Serve. His ratio of unreturned first serve is below average (26%) and he makes on average 20% less aces/service winners than his opponents.

Puncher

High

Thiago Monteiro's game style is a mix between a Puncher and a Retriever. It means that he attacks or defends from the back of the court and can get an edge by making more points or less errors than his rivals.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Thiago Monteiro can play the backhand with Tempo taking the ball on the rise. However, as a caly court specialist his game style turns more around his topspin forehand than his Tempo backhand.

Offensive Player

Low

Thiago Monteiro cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. His volley results are far below the general average of the ATP players.

Retriever

High

48% of Thiago Monteiro's points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. As said previously his game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever.
