Hurkacz is a powerful hitter, at 196 cm (6’5”) tall. He is a good server who can strike hard with both his forehand and backhand but consistency is a challenge for him, as it is for many of the Tour’s more strong players. Hurkacz is a strong defender who plays from the back of the court. While gripping the ball on court, he plays a low, flat, and deadly ball.
