Arthur Ashe was a serve & volleyer (Offensive) and 62% of his total points were won playing that game style. On the return games, he came in as soon as he had a chance and like that he won 73% of the points with the baseline approach and 50% with the Cchip & charge. However, at the net his ratio points/errors with the volley was in the average (66%) and not above.
Offensive / Very High
Arthur Ashe did not play enough baseline rallies (as most of his rivals) to really represent the Punchers. However, the way he hit the forehand & the backhand pass was more like a Puncher (big take back) than a Tempo player. Besdies, he really got an edge with the quality of his single-handed backhand against his opponents making on average two times more points with this shot.
Puncher / Medium-low
Only 26% of Arthur Ashe's points were won by the errors of his rivals. His goal was to charge the net and he never really waited for his rivals to make mistakes.
Retriever / Very low
Arthur Ashe was a serve & volleyer with a better Serve than volley. He did not really got an edge with his volley against his rivals (more points & errors than them) but could count on a really effective Serve. When his first serve was in, 39% of the time it was unreturned and this helps him to make 20% more points with the Serve than his opponents.
Server / High
At the time of Arthur Ashe, the Tempo players did not really exist. We had to wait for Jimmy Connors to see the first effective Tempo player. Otherwise, it was all about serving & volleying and from the back of the court they had much more a Punching technique than a Tempo one. The take backs were rather big and the two-handed backhand (trademark of the Tempo players) were not often used.
