Stefanos Tsitsipas' Game Style

Server

High

Besides having an excellent forehand, Stefanos Tsitsipas can also count on a very effective Serve. He gets a high ratio of first serve unreturned (40%) and makes on average 20% aces/service winners than his rivals.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Stefanos Tsitsipas is a dominant Puncher. His game style is to dictate the procedure with his topspin forehand and when he has a chance to follow this shot to the net. The single-handed backhand is also played with Punch but its result for the moment are not as good as the ones with the forehand.

Tempo Player

Low

Stefanos Tsitsipas cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. The single-handed backhand gets results below average (at the moment) and is more a topspin than a flat shot played close to the baseline. Besides, the return is more used in a Retrieving than an attacking way which is not the characteristics of the Tempo players.

Offensive Player

High

23% of Stefanos Tsitsipas' points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. Most of the time, he uses the forehand for the 1-2 or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Medium

When he starts dictating the baseline rallies with the forehand, Stefanos Tsitsipas can be a Retriever and wear his rivals down. In his case, he is a Puncher/Retriever. Then, the single-handed backhand is still more played in a Retrieving than an attacking way for the moment.
