Saketh Myneni's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

When compared with his rivals, Saketh Myneni takes his biggest edge with his Serve. He makes on average 20% more aces/service winners than them. He can really count on an effective serve to start the points with.

Puncher

Low

Making on average 2 times less points with the forehand than his rivals, Saketh Myneni is anything but a Puncher. He plays this shot more with timing in a Tempo way than with power and topspin.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Aggressive with the backhand and the return, Saketh Myneni is a Tempo player from the back of the court. He gets good results with the return but the backhand gets results below average because he makes too many errors with this shot.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Saketh Myneni varies well his ways to come in. He can play the serve & volley, the 1-2 punch approach right after the serve or the baseline aproach. In total, 24% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and that makes him an Offensive player.

Retriever

Low

Saketh Myneni can't be regarded as a Retriever because he is too aggressive with his serve, return & backhand. He doesn't count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
