Benoit Paire's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

When compared with his rivals Benoit Paire makes on average 30% more points with the Serve than them. Opting for a risky first serve (with a low first serve percentage), 41% of his first Serve are unreturned.

Puncher

Very low

Benoit Paire cannot be regarded as a Puncher at all. The shot he is struggling the most is the forehand making on average 60% more errors than his rivals on that side without taking an advantage with the ratio of points won.

Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court Benoit Paire is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to his baseline and taking the ball on the rise, he posseses one of the best backhand on tour. When compared with his rivals, he makes on average 2 times more points than them on that side. The danger can come in any directions and at any time in the rally.

Offensive Player

High

Benoit Paire also has an Offensive side to his game. In total, 24% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above the general average of the ATP players. He varies well all kind of net approaches: serve & volley, 1-2 punch, baseline approach and chip & charge.

Retriever

Low

Benoit Paire cannot be qualified as a Retriever. In total, 32% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is below average. He is far too Offensive, creative or aggressive with his backhand to count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
