Boris Becker's Game Style

Server

Very high

Although Boris Becker was a serve & volleyer he was still a slightly better Server than volleyer. His biggest edge against his rivals was taken with the Serve making on average 50% more points than them with that shot. When his first serve was in 52% of the time it was unreturned.

Puncher

Very high

From the back of the court, Boris Becker was a Puncher. However, his goal was not to camp on his baseline and hits big forehands but much more to come in as soon as he had a chance. Like this, he cannot be regarded as a true Puncher.

Tempo Player

Low

Even though Boris Becker played rather close to his baseline he could not be regarded as a Tempo player. Unlike the Tempo players, his backhand results were below average. Then, he used the backhand slice and didn't really take the ball on the rise to be aggressive on that side.

Offensive Player

Very high

As said previously, most of the time Boris Becker was a serve & volleyer (Offensive). 49% of his total points were won playing that game style. Then, he could also use the 1-2 punch or the baseline approach. On his return games the chip & charge was often played. At the net, Boris Becker had a excellent hand missong only 21% of his volleys.

Retriever

Very low

Winning only 29% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Boris Becker was nothing but a Retriever. He was far too Offensive to count on his opponents' mistakes to win a match.
