Nick Kyrgios is a dominant Server. When compared with his rivals, this is by far his best shot. Two things explain why his serve is so effective: a high first serve percentage (65%) and a high ratio of first serve unreturned (49%). 

Serve - Very high

From the back of the court, Nick Kyrgios is a Puncher on the forehand side. He can hit very spectacular winners with this shot but on average the ratio of points won with the forehand is still below average.  

Puncher - Medium

Winning only 33% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Nick Kyrgios is nothing but a Retriever. He is far too creative to count on his opponents' mistakes to win a match. 

Retriever - Very low

As a creative player, Nick Kyrgios goes to the net. However, we can't say that he is an Offensive player because his ratio of points won moving forward is in the average of the ATP players (12%) but not above. Another way to be Offensive that Nick Kyrgios uses is the forehand or backhand drop shot.

Offensive - Medium

Nick Kyrgios' backhand is played flat close to the baseline in a Tempo way. Nonetheless, the ratio of points won with this shot is not high enough to enter this category of player.

Tempo - Medium-low
