Lucas Pouille's Game Style

Server

Medium

Lucas Pouille represents well the average Server on the ATP tour. All his Serve's stats are in the average which means that he can take an edge with this shot against the weaker Servers but is dominated versus the best in the business.

Puncher

High

Even though Lucas Pouille is capable of doing many different things on a tennis court he can be regarded as a dominant Puncher. When compared with his rivals, this is with the forehand attack that he takes his biggest edge making on average 15% more points than them.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Lucas Pouille is not only a Puncher but also a Tempo player. It means that he is comfortable taking the ball on the rise close to his baseline and attack with the backhand (or return). He makes on average 25% more points with the backhand than his rivals.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Lucas Pouille developed an Offensive side to his game. In total, 19% 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 his net approaches and is effective most of the time. However, in his case we can say that his forehand & backhand approaches are slightly better than the quality of his volley.

Retriever

Medium-low

Lucas Pouille is more an aggressive baseliner (Puncher & Tempo player) than a Retriever. In total, 38% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is below average. His strategy is not to wear his rivals but much more to attack him.
