Yoshihito Nishioka's Game Style

Server

Very low

Yoshihito Nishioka is nothing but a Server. When compared with his opponents he makes on average 2 times fewer aces/service winners than them and this is by far where he is the most dominated.

Puncher

Medium-low

Yoshihito Nishioka is a dominant Retriever but he can Punch his forehand when he has a chance. However, his ratio of winners/forcing errors is lower than the ATP average and this is mainly explained because he does not run around his backhand a lot.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Yoshihito Nishioka often Retrieves in Tempo close to his baseline. He can also take the ball on the rise to attack his backhand and his ratio of winners/forcing errors with this shot is above the ATP average.

Offensive Player

Medium

Yoshihito Nishioka cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. Nonetheless, 14% of his total points are won at the net and this number is in the ATP average.

Retriever

Very high

Winning 57% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Yoshihito Nishioka is a dominant Retriever. He is dominated by his opponents in the rallies between 1-4 shots but in the rallies over 5 shots he is one of the best in the business. This is really when the rallies extend that he is the most dangerous.
