Andre Agassi's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

During his career, Andre Agassi really improved the quality of his serve. However, opting for a high first serve percentage (69%) he never really got an edge with the quality of this shot against his opponents.

Puncher

Medium-low

Andre Agassi was more a Tempo player than a Puncher because of his court position close to the baseline, his rather flat shots and the risk he took with the backhand & return. The Punchers mainly dominates their rivals with the quality of their topspin forehand. However, Andre Agassi could accelerate any kind of ball with his forehand. Like this, he was also a Puncher when he had to.

Tempo Player

Very high

Andre Agassi was a dominant Tempo player. Taking the ball on the rise all the time, he dominated his opponents by making more points points & less errors with the forehand, backhand & return. He was effective with this shot in every direction and at any moment in the rallies.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Andre Agassi could not be qualified of an Offensive player, he was much more the one counterpunching the best in that business. Nonetheless, he had really good results when moving forward (73% of the points won) and 11% of his total points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play).

Retriever

High

Andre Agassi was not only an outstanding Tempo player, he was an excellent Retriever too. 46% of his points were won by the errors of the rivals which stands above the average of the ATP players. Besides, as mentioned previously he got an edge against his rivals by making less errors than them with the forehand & backhand. When the rallies extended 5 shots, he won 58% of the points which is a remarkable result.
