Jonas Bjorkman's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium

Playing a lot of serve & volley, Jonas Bjorkman was also a good Server. When his first serve was in, 34% of the time it was an ace or a service winner and this result stands in the average of the ATP players.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium

Making on average less points than his rivals with the forehand , Jonas Bjorkman wasn't a Puncher at all. He didn't play that shot with topspin and preferred playing his backhand than to run around it to hit a forehand.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

High

On the return games or from the back of the court, Jonas Bjorkman was a Tempo player. He played close to the baseline, took the ball on the rise and attacked with the backhand, the forehand but also the return of serve.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Very high

Winning 50% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Jonas Bjokman is a dominating Offensive player. As soon as he had a chance, he rushed to the net and he made on average three times more points with his volley than his opponents. His favorite way to come in was the serve & volley but on the return games he could also use the return volley and the baseline approach. The 1-2 punch approach was the least used.

Low
