Tempo

Very high

Nikoloz Basilashvili is the perfect example of an aggressive Tempo Player. He stands close to the baseline and constantly takes risks with the forehand, backhand & return. He makes on average two time more points with these shots than his rivals. On the one hand, he takes risks and on the other hand by taking so much risks the opponents have less opportunities to attack themselves. 

Puncher

High

Nikoloz Basilashvili plays in Tempo but he also Punches with the forehand. He is really a Tempo/Puncher which means that he attacks as much with the forehand as with the backhand. 

Server

Low-Medium

At the beginning of his career, Nikoloz Basilashvili wasn't effective with the Serve. But from 2018, he really improved that shot and now he can also count on his Serve to win a match. By the way, if he keeps serving this way, the serve stats will improve strongly.

Offensive

Low

Winning 8% of the points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Nikoloz Basilashvili is nothing but an Offensive player. 

Retriever

Low

Taking that much risks with the forehand, backhand & return, Nikoloz Basilashvili doesn't count on his rivals errors to win a match. He is not a Retriever at all.
