Plays: Right-handed, with a one-handed backhand.

Greatest Strengths: Brilliant shotmaker, with exceptional versatility, touch, and accuracy, especially on the forehand. Capable of great power on groundstrokes and very good power on serves, with excellent placement. Movement extremely quick and smooth. Comfortable on every part of the court.
