Magnus Larsson's Game Style

Server

High

Magnus Larsson could also count on an effective Serve. When that first serve was in, 44% of the time it was unreturned and this result was above the general average of the ATP players.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Magnus Larsson was a dominant Puncher. He could do many things on a tennis court but his most effective shot was the Punching forehand. He could hit winners or short angles from every part of the court brilliantly.

Tempo Player

Medium

On the forehand side, Magnus Larsson was a Puncher but on the backhand side he was much more of a Tempo player. The big forehand take back prevented him form taking the ball on the rise with the forehand but not with the backhand.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Magnus Larsson often used his two best shots (forehand & serve) to move forward. Winning 22% of his total points at the net, he could also count on an Offensive side.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 34% of his points by the errors of his rivals, Magnus Larsson was far too creative to count on his rivals' errors to win a match.
