Andreas Seppi's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium-low

When compared with his rivals, Andreas Seppi is the most dominated by his rivals with the Serve making 30% fewer aces/service winners than them. Because of that he cannot be regarded as a Server and he will have to win his matches from the back of the court.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

Andreas Seppi is a dominant Puncher who makes on average 40% more points with the forehand than his rivals. On that side, the danger can come in any directions and at any time in the rallye (short, medium & long). In total, 22% of his points are won with the forehand and this result is above the general average of the ATP players.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Medium-high

We can say that Andreas Seppi is a Puncher / Tempo which means that his main weapon is the forehand but he plays that shot flat and close to the baseline as a Tempo player. Being capable to take the ball on the rise he also gets a ratio of points with the backhand & return in the average.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Andreas Seppi is more a baseline player than an Offensive one. 11% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands below average. At the net, he can also miss a couple of volleys (42%).

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium

Andreas Seppi is more a Puncher or a Tempo player than a Retriever but he can also extend the baseline rallies. Actually, he plays more long rallies (over 8 shots) than average but will be still more effective in the shorter ones (between 3 6 8 shots). In total, 44% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result stands in the average.
