Casper Ruud's Game Style

Server

Medium

We can say that Casper Ruud as an average Serve. It means that he can take an edge with that shot against the weak Servers but is dominated against the best ones.

Puncher

Medium-high

As said previously, Casper Ruud's game style is a mix between a Retriever and a Puncher. It mainly depends against what kind of player he has to face. He would be more a Retriever against an aggressive player and a Puncher versus a defensive one. In total, 19% of his points are won with the topspin forehand and this result is above average.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

When he has to Casper Ruud can also play the backhand in Tempo rather close to his baseline. However, unlike the Tempo players he uses more the backhand and the return to Retrieve than to attack and his ratio of points with these shots are below average.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Winning only 8% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play) Casper Ruud cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. His strategy is much more to play consistent or attack from the back of the court than to come in.

Retriever

High

Casper Ruud's game style is a mix between a dominant Retriever and a dominant Puncher. It means that from the back of the court, his main strengths is the forehand and he uses that shot to wear his rivals down and also to attack. However, when compred with his rivals, he takes a bigger edge making fewer errors than more points than them. In total, 51% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above the average of the ATP players.
