Expert’s resume

Roko's both first and second serves are well placed and controlled. Moreover, considering his heigh his serve has a great potential to improve further and become his lethal weapon. Roko has average returns due to his body type and he can improve coordination and balance in order to further perfect the speed and accuracy of his returns. He hits the forehand with moderate spin and makes a good wide swing motion. Handles high balls extremely well, but can do better with his footwork and meet the ball more aggressively. The same is true for his backhand, which looks a bit less developed so his opponents may build the game loading the left side of his court. Excellent volleys, playing with a firm wrist giving him great control and placement, he makes no unnecessary movements. Serve & volley tactics suit him well. Roko tends to avoid long rallies and prefer to play aggressive tennis.
