Andrey Rublev's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Although Andrey Rublev's Serve has been improving, he can't really count on this shot to win a match. Nonetheless, the Serve still gives him free points and it competes well his Punching skills.

Puncher

Very high

Andrey Rublev is a dominant Puncher. His more effective shot is by far his forehand. He tries to play this shot from the beginning to the end of each rally. He is effective in every possible direction and at any moment in the rally and this is the trademark of the best Punchers.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Besides being a Puncher, Andrey Rublev is also a Tempo player. Even though he is much more effective with the forehand than with the backhand or the return, he tries to be agressive with these two shots when he has a chance. His court position close to the baseline is also the one of a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Winning only 9% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Andrey Rublev can't be regarded as an Offensive player at all. He often prefers to hit an extra forehand than to come in.

Retriever

Medium

Rublev doesn't count on his rivals' errors to win a match (Retriever) but when he starts to dictate the baseline rally with the forehand, he can also wear his rivals down. In his case, he Punches his opponents with pace forcing them to miss from time to time. In total 42% of this points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result stands in the average of the ATP players.
