__Tempo__

__Very high__

Alexander Zverev is a dominant Tempo Player. Playing close to the baseline, he generates a lot of pace on both side and possess one of the best backhand in the world. On that side, he puts the balls back in play with power in any kind of situations (attack, pace & counterpunch). Statistically, the Tempo forehand is not as good as the backhand mainly because he makes less points than his opponents with that shot. This is the ratio of points with the forehand inside in & inside out which is below average. Having such a good backhand, he doesn't run around it enough to get a higher ratio of points.

__Retriever__

__High__

Winning 46% of his points by the errors of the rivals (above the average of the ATP players), Alexander Zverev is not only a Tempo player but also an excellent Retriever. But he remains a Tempo/Retriever which means that first he puts pace and then he collects the mistakes from his opponents. A Retriever/Tempo would much more absorb the pace from his rivals.

__Server__

__High__

Alexander Zverev's Serve has been improving in the last years and now he can count on an effective serve. Nonetheless, his Serve's performances are just above the average of the ATP players. For a player 6'6''/198 cm tall, he could expect better results with that shot.

__Puncher__

__Medium__

On slow ball Alexander Zverev Punches with his forehand but the results are (currently) in the average of the ATP players and not above. He wins on average 20% less points than his rivals with that shot and this is not enough to be regarded as a true Puncher. In his case the Tempo dominates the Punch from the back of the court.

__Offensive__

__Medium__

The net game gives Alexander Zverev 14% of his points but this is not enough to be regarded as an Offensive Player. However, he uses more and more the 1-2 approach right after his serve and this game plan is really effective.
