Compare his Stats with the ones of the Northern European Players here

Ricardas Berankis is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to his baseline and taking the ball on the rise, he is very aggressive on both sides. When compared with his rivals, he makes on average more points with the backhand, the forehand and the return than them. 

Tempo / High

Being so aggressive from the back of the court Ricardas Berankis is not only a Tempo player but also a Puncher. It means that he can also attack slower balls with his forehand when he has. However, his global game style is much more the one of a Tempo player than a Puncher. 

Puncher / Medium

Ricardas Berankis cannot be qualified as a Retriever. In total, 35% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is below average. He is far too aggressive & Offensive to count on his opponents' errors to win a match.

Retriever / Low

Ricardas Berankis also possess an Offensive side to his game. In total, 20% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above the general average of the ATP players. His favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch & the baseline approach. However, the quality of his approaches is better than the one of his volley and as a result he misses a couple of shots at the net. 

Offensive / Medium-high

Even though Ricardas Berankis is strongly dominated by his rivals with the Serve, this shot is still effective. Opting for a risky first serve, he gets a ratio of unreturned above average (38%). The reason explaining why he gets on average 20% fewer aces/service winners than his opponents is his return position close to the baseline which helps his rivals to make more points with their Serve. 

Serve / Medium
