Khachanov is a hard-hitting baseliner who is noted for his serve and groundstrokes. He prefers to be attacking, setting up wins with his serve or dictating rallies with his forehand. The forehand is Khachanov’s trademark stroke, which he smashes with high speed and spin to move opponents around and create wins. Due to his weaker backhand wing, he is renowned to run around his backhand to inside-out and inside-in forehands. His powerful serve and one-two combo of serve and forehand also help him to comfortably hold service and focus on breaking opponents.

Rosengren has a long coaching career of over 30 years. He has coached several Swedish star players over several generations. The Swedish world number two Magnus Norman and the world number four Robin Soderling are two of these Swedish stars. Other followers of Rosengren include Mario Ancic, a Croatian tennis player who in 2006 was ranked number 7 in the world. Between 2012 and 2017, Rosengren was Sweden’s Davis Cup captain.

Vedran Martic, on the other hand, has been a long-time coach to Khachanov. He was the one who propelled the Russian to a career best of eighth place. Karen Khachanov (2017-2020) won three ATP Tour singles championships under his coaching in 2018. Marin Cilic is also coached by Vedran Martic, in addition to Karen.
