Peter Polansky's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Peter Polansky's ratio of first & second aces/service winners is below average. As a consequence, he makes on average 30% less points with the Serve than his rivals and he can't be regarded as a Server.

Puncher

Medium

Peter Polansky Retrieves in a Punching way. It means that he plays with topspin and this is with the forehand that he can take risks from time to time. The ratio of points won with the forehand is in the average (18%).

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Peter Polanksy doesn't play close to the baseline in Tempo. He stands further back and Retrieves every ball with Punch.

Offensive Player

Low

Only 6% of Peter Polansky's points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is far below average. He prefers to extend the baseline rallies than to come in and can't be regarded as an Offensive player at all.

Retriever

Very high

Solid on both sides, Peter Polansky is a dominant Retriever. 55% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is far above the general average of the ATP players. Peter Polansky makes on average less points with the serve, the return, the forehand, the backhand and the volley than his opponents.
