Andrey Rublev's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Although Andrey Rublev's Serve has been improving, he cannot really count on this shot to win matches. Nonetheless, his Serve still gives him free points and allows him to start most of the rallies in a good position.

Puncher

Very high

Andrey Rublev is a dominant Puncher. His most effective shot is by far his topspin forehand and he tries to play this shot from the beginning to the end of each rally. Being one of the best Puncher on tour, his forehand is excellent in every possible direction and at any time in the rally.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Besides being a Puncher, Andrey Rublev is also a Tempo player. Even though he is much more effective with his forehand than with his backhand or return, he constantly puts pressure on the backhand side. His court position close to the baseline is also the one of a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Winning only 10% of his total points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Andrey Rublev cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. He often prefers to hit an extra forehand than to come in.

Retriever

Medium

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