Vasek Pospisil's Game Style

High

When compared with his rivals, Vasek Pospisil takes his biggest edge with his Serve. He makes on average 20% more aces/service winners than them. He opts for a risky first serve with a low first serve percentage (58%) but gets a high ratio of unreturned (48%).

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Vasek Pospisil is a Puncher who makes on average 40% more points with the forehand than his rivals. He is really effective when he follows this shot to the net. In his case, he is a Puncher/Offensive.

Tempo Player

Low

Vasek Pospisil can't be regarded as a Tempo player at all. His backhand and backhand return's results are below the average of the ATP players mainly because he is not so effective taking the ball on the rise.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Vasek Pospisil uses his good Serve to come in with the serve & volley or with the 1-2 punch right after it. In total, 28% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is above the general average of the ATP players.

Retriever

Low

Having such a good Serve, being Offensive and Punching the ball with the forehand, Vasek Pospisil wins only 35% of his points by the errors of his rivals. This result is below average and as a consequence he can't be regarded as a Retriever.
