Bernard Tomic's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

As we will see Bernard Tomic's game style is a mix of several profile types. However, when compared with his rivals, this is with the Serve that he takes his biggest edge. He goes for a high first serve percentage (67%) but still manages to get a high ratio of unreturned (37%).

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Bernard Tomic can play in a Punching way with his forehand but it's not alway the case. When he does so, he often runs around the backhand to attack with the flat forehand.

Tempo Player

Medium

Playing close to the baseline & hitting flat on both sides, Bernard Tomic can take the ball on the rise and play in Tempo. His counterpunching skills are also good and that makes him a complete baseliner.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

The Offensive is the Profile that Bernard Tomic uses the least. He still wins 11% of his pitons at the net (with or without a volley to play) but this result is just below the average of the ATP players.

Retriever

Medium-high

When the baseline rally starts, Bernard Tomic's game style is a mix of a flat Puncher & a Retriever. He can generate pace on the forehand side but can also absorbe it as a Counterpuncher.
