Ernests Gulbis is among the best Server on the ATP tour. He makes on average 40% more points with this shot than his rivals and this is by far his biggest edge taken. When his first serve is in, 49% of the time it is unreturned and this result is above the general average of the ATP players.
Server / Very high
Ernests Gulbis cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because only 11% of his total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is just below average. He is more a player hitting strong from the baseline than a player coming in as soon as he has a chance.
Offensive / Medium-low
Winning only 31% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Ernests Gulbis is not a Retriever at all. His game style is to Serve big and then to attack with his Tempo game style from the back of the court.
Retriever / Low
From the back of the court Ernests Gulbis is a Tempo player. Standing close to his baseline, he makes on average 2.5 times more points with his backhand & return than his rivals but also much more errors.
Tempo / High
When compared with his rivals, Ernests Gulbis is the most dominated with his forehand making on average 40% more errors than them. The way he hits the forehand is much more like a Tempo player (rather flat & close to his baseline) than a Puncher (topspin). As a result, his ratio of forehand point is as high as the one of his opponents but not the one of errors.
