Playing styleEdit

Bachinger has an unusual take-back and swing on his forehand and backhand. He has solid groundstrokes, with both sides capable of producing winners. He has a good serve that can reach up to 127 mph (204km/h). He is very strong at the net and frequently rushes to the net. He frequently serve-and-volleys and uses the chip-and-charge tactic on returns.

Professional careerEdit

In 2007, Bachinger qualified for his first ATP tournament, the 2007 BMW Open. Bachinger won in the first round against Andreas Beck 6–2, 7–6, 7–5 before losing to Marcos Baghdatis in the second round 6–7, 2–6, 4–6.

In 2008, Bachinger entered the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, the BMW Open, the Austrian Open and the If Stockholm Open, losing in the first round in each event.

He then played only Challenger level tournaments before qualifying for the 2010 If Stockholm Open, where he reached the second round.

Bachinger reached his first ATP semifinal at the 2012 BRD Năstase Țiriac Trophy. He also reached the quarterfinals of Umag the same year, defeating seventh-seeded Martin Kližan en route.

In 2013, Bachinger defeated Andreas Seppi, then ranked 18, for his first top 20 win.

In 2014, he reached the semifinals in Stockholm as a qualifier.

In 2018, he reached his first ATP Tour final in Metz (again as a qualifier) after beating Kei Nishikori in the semifinals,[1] but lost to Gilles Simon.
