Stan Wawrinka's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

When compared with his opponents, Stan Wawrinka takes his biggest edge with his Serve making on average 20% more aces/service winners than them. We can see his Serve as his hidden weapon.

Puncher

High

Stan Wawrinka is a dominant Puncher. He makes on average 80% more winners/forcing Errors 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 a Puncher.

Tempo Player

Low

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

Offensive Player

Medium

When he has to Stan Wawrinka comes to the net to get an edge but he cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. When he moves forward he wins 72% of his points and at the net he posses a good hand missing only 28% 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 opponents. However, he is much more a Puncher than a Retriever and he does not count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
