Thomas Johansson's Game Style

Server.png

Server

High

Thomas Johansson went big on his first serve and got a high ratio of unreturned, especially T on deuce court. He could really count on this shot to get free points in a match.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

Thomas Johansson can't be regarded as a Puncher because the ratio of points won with his forehand was below the average of the ATP players. He was much more a Tempo player taking the ball on the rise than a topspin Puncher.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

High

Thomas Johansson was a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to the baseline and generating pace on both sides, his backhand was his best shot. Like most of the Tempo players, his return of serve was also as good as aggressive.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-high

When he had a chance, Thomas Johansson often followed his forehand or backhand to the net. The serve & volley was also played from time to time. Generally, he got excellent results when coming in.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Very low

Winning only 34% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Thomas Johansson wasn't Retriever. He had too many weapons to count on his opponents' errors to win a match.
