Stan Wawrinka's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Stan Wawrinka's second best shot (after his backhand) is the Serve. He makes on average 20% more aces/service winners than his rivals and like this he gets a precious edge. Top players usually have two weapons and this is his case.

Puncher

Very high

Stan Wawrinka is a dominant Puncher. He makes on average 70% more points with the backhand & 15% with the forehand. Usually, effective backhands are played in Tempo but he does it with Punch. His single-handed backhand allows him to put more topspin than average and he does not take the ball on the rise but load his shots like Punchers.

Tempo Player

Low

Stan Wawrinka is a dominant Puncher and cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. He does not take the ball on the rise and his return quality is in the average and not above. Usually, Tempo player are much more aggressive than him with the return.

Offensive Player

Medium

When he has to Stan Wawrinka comes in to get an edge but he cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. When he moves forward he wins 73% of his points and at the net he possesses a good hand missing only 27% of his volleys.

Retriever

Medium

As a complete baseliner, Stan Wawrinka can also extend the baseline rallies and wins points by the errors of his rivals. However, he is much more a Puncher than a Retriever and he does not count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
