Steve Darcis is a dominant Puncher who makes on average almost two times more points with the forehand than his rivals. Out of the five possible shots (serve, return, forehand, backhand & volley) this is the only shot he takes an edge against his opponents on average.
Puncher / Very high
Steve Darcis is not only capable of attacking with the forehand, his ratio of errors with this shot is still below the average of the ATP players. Besides, the way he plays the backhand slice is mainly by Retrieving.
Retriever / Medium
Steve Darcis' forehand is so effective that he can also sometimes take the ball on the rise like a Tempo player. However, because of his single-handed backhand he is much more a Puncher than a Tempo player.
Tempo / Medium-low
When he has a chance, Steve Darcis often follows his big forehand to the net. In total, 16% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands in the average. However, his forehand approach is better than the quality of his volley.
Offensive / Medium
Steve Darcis' first & second serve won point are just above average but he is dominated by his rivals by making 30% less aces/service winners than them. It means that he possesses a better baseline game than Serve.
