Tommy Haas' Game Style

Server.png

Server

High

Tommy Haas didn't have only effective ground strokes (Puncher), he could also count on an effective Serve to get free points. This package groundstroke / Serve made him an aggressive player all round. Besides, when compared with his rivals, this is with the Serve that he was taking his biggest edge.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

Tommy Haas was a dominant Puncher. Having a single-handed backhand he could Punch on both wings and that made him a very complete baseliner. He still won more points with the Forehand than the backhand but when his results were compared with the rest of the ATP players, he got better results with the backhand.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Low

As most of the players with a single-handed backhand, Tommy Haas wasn't a Tempo player at all. He didn't really take the ball on the rise to be agressive. He was much more to load his shots before unleashing.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium

Winning 14% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Tommy Haas was a bit Offensive but not too much. The volley was more used to complete his Punching game style than to be Offensive.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium

Tommy Haas could also Retrieve when he had to but we can't say that he was a Retriever. His game plan was much more to attack with the Punching forehand ore backhand than to count on his opponents errors to win a match.
