Playing Style[edit]

Geller in considered an aggressive baseline player. He possess a very powerful flat serve, and also has great shots on both wings. He often uses his serve to set up points or to get to the net. Geller also has a very flat backhand and forehand, both which he uses to dictate points and the tempo.

Geller though does have some weaknesses. Because of his large frame Geller does struggle with his movement a bit. Those weaknesses are often overcome though because of the shots he has on both wings.
