Reilly Opelka's Game Style

Server

Very high

Reilly Opelka is a dominant Server. He makes on average 2 times more aces/service winners than his rivals. When his first serve is in, 58% of the time it is unreturned and this result is far above the general average of the ATP players.

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Reilly Opelka often takes risks with the Punching forehand. However, this is only on his first shot after his serve than he is effective with that shot. When the rallies extend, he makes much more errors than his opponents on that side.

Tempo Player

Low

From the back of the court, Reilly Opelka is much more a Puncher than a Tempo player. He doesn't really take the ball on the rise and his ratio of points won with the backhand is far below average.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Having such a big Serve, Reilly Opelka often plays the serve & volley or the 1-2 punch approach. We can't say that he possesses an excellent hand at the net but he is capable of finishing the points.

Retriever

Very low

Reilly Opelka is nothing but a Retriever. He wins only 24% of his total points by the errors of his rivals and this result is far below the average of the ATP players.
