Style of play[edit]

Reda El Amrani has a very powerful serve, he can easily reach 200 kph. He usually hits approximately 10 aces by match. He has a very good forehand, as he hits it spinny most of the time ; but when he hits it flat, he hurts very much his opponents ; he won by this way against 2 top 100 players. But he does sometimes a lot of double faults, because of his numerous injuries, like his knee injury which bothered him in 2011. When he isn't injured, he can play with a top 100 level, as he is very talented. His one handed backhand is very esthetic, and powerful. His idol is Roger Federer, actually his serve is very close to Federer's serve, as of his backhand. He knows what to do stunning dropshots. He is nicknamed "The Moroccan Frank Dancevic".
