Dominic Thiem's Game Style

Server

Medium

Dominic Thiem's numbers with his Serve are in the average of the ATP players. He makes the same ratio of aces/service winners than his rivals. It means that against good servers, he will be dominated with that shot but not against the players whose serve is below average.

Puncher

Very high

Dominic Thiem is a dominant Puncher. He gets his biggest edge againt his opponents making more winners/forcing errors than them with the topspin forehand & single-handed backhand. He can be dangerous with these shots in any direction (cross, down the line, inside in & inside out) & at any time in the rally (short, medium & long).

Tempo Player

Low

Dominic Thiem cannot be regarded as a Tempo player at all. Playing with heavy topspin on both sides, his game style does not allow him to take the ball on the rise close to the baseline on a regular basis. Being far fromthe baseline, his return position is much more defensive than aggressive.

Offensive Player

Medium

Although 13% of Dominic Thiem's total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play), he cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. He gets a high ratio of points when he moves forward (79%) mainly because his forehand approaches are outstanding.

Retriever

High

Playing with heavy topspin on the forehand & backhand side, Dominic Thiem not only attack his opponents but also wears them down. In his case, the Retrieving side comes right after the Punching one. Nonetheless, still 44% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this number is just above average.
