Tempo

Very high

Playing close to the baseline, David Goffin is an excellent Tempo player. This is with the backhand that he takes his biggest edge against his rivals on average. Being so fast around the court, he is capable to cut the angle off and hit the backhand when the ball is on the rise. This is the position where he is the most effective!

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, David Goffin is also an excellent Puncher. He uses his forehand to attack when he has a chance. Nonetheless, this is with the forehand down the line that he is the most effective!

Retriever

High

Being so fast on a tennis court and defending well, David Goffin also wins points by the errors of his Rivals as a Retriever. In total, 43% of his points are won that way which is in the average of the ATP players. In that regard, the backhand is often used to counterpunch and he can also use the topspin forehand to wear the rivals down. 

Server

Medium

David Goffin can't be regarded as a Server but he still gets free points with his serve. In total, 22% of his points are won with aces/service winners which stands in the average of the ATP players.

Offensive

Medium

Being capable to take the ball on the rise or attack any dead ball with topspin, David Goffin often follows his forehand/backhand to the net. Like that, 15% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands in the average of the ATP players.
