Milos Raonic is a dominant Server. When compared with his rivals this is by far with the Serve that he takes his biggest edge against them. He is one of the best Servers on the ATP tour because he has the double advantage to get a high first serve percentage (63%) and a high ratio of unreturned (55%).

Server / Very high

Milos Raonic uses his big Serve to come in with the serve & volley or with the 1-2 punch right after it. In total, 23% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is above the general average of the ATP players.

Offensive / Medium High

Having such a big Serve, being Offensive and Punching hard the ball with the forehand, Milos Raonic wins only 27% of his points by the errors of his rivals. This result is far below average and as a consequence he is nothing but a Retriever.

Retriever / Very low

From the back of the court, Milos Raonic is a Puncher who likes to hit strong his forehand. However, the forehand results are globally in the average and not above. This is right after his serve that he is the most effective with that shot. Then, when the baseline rallies extend he is usually dominated by his rivals on that side (too many errors).

Puncher / Medium-high

Milos Raonic can't be regarded as a Tempo player at all. His backhand and backhand return's results are below the average of the ATP players mainly because he is not so effective taking the ball on the rise. 

Tempo / Low
