Thomas Enqvist's Game Style

Server

High

Thomas Enqvist was a powerful Server who took a lot of risks on his first serve. He got a very low first serve percentage (51%) but a high ratio of unreturned (41%). However, when his serve results were compared with the one of his rivals, he got on average the same ratio of aces/service winners.

Puncher

High

Thomas Enqvist wasn't only agressive with the backhand & the return, he also attacked with the flat forehand. In his case, we can say that he was also a flat Puncher. But his court position close to the baseline was much more the one of a Tempo player.

Tempo Player

High

Playing close to the baseline with high pace, Thomas Enqvist was a dominant Tempo player. As most of the Tempo players, he was agressive with the flat backhand & return and got a ratio of points far above average with these two shots.

Offensive Player

Medium

17% of Thomas Enqvist's Total Points were won at the net and this results was in the average of the ATP players. His favorite way to come in with the 1-2 punch or baseline approach. Nonetheless, his ratio of points/errors with the volley was below average. In his case, we can say that his approaches were better than his volley.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 33% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Thomas Enqvist was nothing but a Retriever. He was far too agressive with every possible shot to count on his opponents' mistake to win a match.
