Ramkumar Ramanathan's Game Style

Server.png

Server

High

Ramkumar Ramanathan can count on an effective serve. He gets a rather low first serve percentage (58%) but when that first serve is in 41% of the time it is unreturned. When compared with his rivals, this is with this shot that he takes his biggest edge on average.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-low

When he has to play a baseline rally, Ramkumar Ramanathan is more a Puncher than a Tempo player or a Retriever. However, he makes on average almost two times less points with the forehand than his rivals.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Low

Ramkumar Ramanathan's backhand and return's results are below the average of the ATP players. Not really effective when he has to take the ball on the rise, he doesn't represent the Tempo players at all.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Very high

Ramkumar Ramanathan is a very Offensive player who often plays the serve & volley. 29% of his total points are won playing this game style. Otherwise, he also uses the 1-2 punch approach, the baseline approach and the chip & charge. In total 45% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is far above the genera average of the ATP players.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 35% of his points by the errors of his rivals (below average), Ramkumar Ramanathan can't be regarded as a Retriever. He is much more an Offensive player willing to go to the net.
