Jo-Wilfreid Tsonga's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Very high

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a dominant Server. He takes his biggest edge against his rivals with the quality of his Serve making on average 30% more aces/service winners than them. When his first serve is in 48% of the time it is unreturned.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a Puncher. This is with the forehand that he takes risks and gets another edge against his rivals. However, this risky mind-set with the forehand leads him to a higher ratio of points but also errors than his opponents.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Low

The profile missing in Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is definitely the Tempo. He is not comfortable taking the ball on the rise close to the baseline and as a consequence his backhand & return results are below the average of the ATP players.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga varies well his net approaches (Offensive). He can play the serve & volley, the 1-2 punch or the baseline approach. In total, 19% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above average. We can sum up his game this way: big serve, big forehand & volley.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Low

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga cannot be regarded as a Retriever at all. Winning only 33% of his points by the errors of his rivals (below average) most of the time he will be the first one to attack.
