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

Pedro Sousa is a dominant Puncher. In total 34% of his points are won with his topspin forehand and this result is far above the average of the ATP players. He can be dangerous with the forehand in any directions and at any time in the rallies.

Puncher / Very high

Pedro Sousa is more an aggressive baseliner than a Retriever. However, as a clay court specialist he can also Retrieve and extend the baseline rallies. 

Retriever / Medium-low

Opting for a high first serve percentage, Pedro Sousa is not a Server at all. When compared with his rivals, the Serve is the shot he is the most dominated by his rivals making on average 40% less aces/service winners than them. 

Server / Very low

Pedro Sousa is not only a Puncher, he is also a Tempo player. He is aggressive with his backhand and return that he takes on the rise close to the baseline. However, his backhand results are not as good as the ones with his forehand. 

Tempo / High

Winning only 10% of his total points at the net Pedro Sousa cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. He prefers to extend the baseline rallies Punching than to be Offensive.  

Offensive / Medium-low
