Compare his Stats with the ones of the Other Spanish Players here

Paolo Lorenzi's game style is between a dominant Retriever and a dominant Offensive player. It means that on the one hand he plays consistent from the back of the court and wears his rivals down and on the other hand he frequently comes in to mix things up. That makes him a rare but very interesting game style on tour. In total, 47% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is above the general average of the ATP players. 

Retriever / High

Even though Paolo Lorenzi is a clay court specialist, he cannot be regarded as a Puncher at all. He makes on average two times fewer points with the forehand than his rivals. This shot is much more used to Retrieve than to attack.

Puncher / Medium-low

Paolo Lorenzi is not a Tempo player at all. Unlike this kind of player, he plays rather far from his baseline, uses a lot of topspin and does not often take the ball on the rise. His return is also played in a defensive way which is the opposite of the Tempo player who are much more aggressive than him.

Tempo / Low

As said previously, Paolo Lorenzi mixes defensive and Offensive game style. In total, 25% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is far above average. He varies well all kind of net approaches: serve & volley, 1-2 punch right after his serve and baseline approach. At the net, he also possesses a good hand missing only 26% of his volleys. 

Offensive / High

Paolo Lorenzi cannot be qualified as a Server but he still gets an edge with that shot against his rivals making 15% more aces/service winners than them. However, this result is more explained because of his defensive return position (which allows him to put back in play more serves than average) and the fact that he plays mainly on clay (which slows the serve down). 

Server / Medium-low
