Jan-Lennard Struff's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Jan-Lennard Struff possesses an effective Serve but when compared with his rivals he makes fewer aces/service winners than them. The reason explaining such a result is a return position very close to his baseline. This position helps him to get more points with the return but it also helps his rivals making more points with their serves.

Puncher

High

Besides being a Tempo player, Jan-Lennard Struff is also a Puncher. It means that his forehand is played with topspin and he is comfortable attacking slower balls. Having the Tempo and the Punch he is a complete aggressive player from the back of the court.

Tempo Player

Very high

Jan-Lennard Struff is a dominant Tempo player. When compared with his rivals he makes on average more points with the return, the forehand and the backhand. Standing close to his baseline and taking the ball on the rise he possesses one of the best backhand on tour.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Having such an aggressive mind-set Jan-Lennard Struff also has an Offensive side to his game. In total, 18% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above the general average of the ATP players. His favorite way to move forward is the 1-2 punch approach right after his serve.

Retriever

Low

Being so aggressive with every possible shots, Jan-Lennard is nothing but a Retriever. In total, 32% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is below average.
