Donald Young can be regarded as an Offensive player. However, the Punch & the Retrieve are also completely part of his game style. In total, 21% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above the general average of the ATP players. His favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch right after his serve and the baseline approach. 

Offensive / Medium-high

From the back of the court, Donald Young's game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever. When he has time, he otfen dictates the procedure with his topspin forehand. However, this shot becomes really effective when followed to the net. 

Puncher / Medium-high

Donald Young is nothing but a Server. When compared with his rivals, he is strongly dominated with his number of aces/service winners. 

Server / Very low

From the back of the court, Donald Young's game style is between a Puncher and a Retriever. Playing the forehand with topspin, this shot allows him to win points but also to wear his rivals down. He gets a precious edge by making on average 30% fewer errors with his backhand than his rivals and in total 48% of his points are won by the errors of his opponents (above average). 

Retriever / Medium-high

Donald Young cannot be regarded as a Tempo player because he is far too passive with his backhand and return. Usually, Tempo players are very aggressive with these two shots taking the ball on the rise. However, his counterpunching skille are good. 

Tempo / Medium-low
