Jannik Sinner's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Jannik posses a good serve with a high ratio of unreturned (37%) but he does not take an edge againt his opponents with this shot. This is due to his return position close to the baseline that allows his rivals to serve more aces/service winners than average againt him. This tendency often happens to Tempo players.

Puncher

Medium

Jannik Sinner is more a Tempo Player than a Puncher. Playing with pace close to his basline, his backhand is more effective than his forehand. As a consequence unlike the Punchers, he runs less around his backhand to hit forehands than average.

Tempo Player

High

Jannik Sinner is a dominant Tempo player. This is with his ratio of winners/forcing winners with the backhand but also the return that he takes his biggest edge againt his opponents. His rather flat hitting close to the baseline is also a trademark of the Tempo players.

Offensive Player

Medium

Jannik Sinner cannot be regarded as an Offensive Player but he often uses the forehand or backhand approach to move forward. This mainly comes on his first shot after his serve or during the baseline rallies.

Retriever

Medium

Jannik Sinner is more an aggressive player from the back of the court than a Retriever. However, he is not againt extending the rallies when he has to and his wins slightly more points than average in the rallies over 5 shots (51%). In total, 42% of his points are won by the errors of his opponents and this number is in the average of the ATP.
