Henri Leconte's Game Style

Server

High

Playing the serve & volley a lot, Henri Leconte could also count on an effective serve. When that first serve was in, 31% of the time it was an ace or a service winner. His serve also often helped him to get easy first volleys or forehand for the 1-2 punch approach.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Henri Leconte was a Puncher. He liked to take risks with the forehand but also the single-handed backhand. However, he can't be really regarded as a Puncher because the Offensive game was so dominant and because his baseline results were below average.

Tempo Player

Low

Henri Leconte was much more a Puncher than a Tempo player from the back of the court. He could take the ball on the rise close to the baseline but it was much more to Punch than to play with Tempo.

Offensive Player

Very high

Henri Leconte was an Offensive player who played most of the time the serve & volley; 45% of his points were won that way. Having an excellent hand at the net, he also varied well all kind of net approach: 1-2 punch, baseline & return volley. In total, 64% of this points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands far above the general average of the ATP players.

Retriever

Low

Winning only 24% of his points by the errors of the rivals, Henri Leconte was nothing but a Retriever.
