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

Fernando Verdasco is a dominant Puncher. His game style turnd around his topspin forehand and when compared with his rivals he makes on average more points & errors with this shot. As an aggressive baseliner, he is dangerous and effective with the forehand in any directions and at any moment in the rallies. 

Puncher / Very high

During his career Fernando Verdasco also developped an aggressive backhand that he often plays in Tempo close to his baseline. His ratio of points won with the backhand (and the return) is in the average.

Tempo / Medium

Fernando Verdasco cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. Only 8% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below average. At the net, he is also missing more volleys than average (40%). 

Offensive / Low

Fernando Verdasco's topspin forehand not only gives him points but it also wears his rivals' backhand down (Retriever). This shot has really this double advantage. In total, 39% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result stands in the average of the ATP players. 

Retriever / Medium

Fernando Verdasco cannot be qualified as a Server because he goes more for a percentage first serve than a risky one. However, when compared with his rivals, he makes on average the same ratio of aces/service winners. 

Server / Medium-low
