Yannick Noah's Game Style

Server

High

Playing the serve & volley most of the time, Yannick Noah could also count on an effective serve. When that first serve was in, 33% of the time it was an ace or a service winner. His serve also often helped him to get easy first volleys.

Puncher

High

Yannick Noah wasn't winning enough points with the forehand to be regarded as a Puncher. He was struggling to get free points on that side.

Tempo Player

Very low

Yannick Noah wasn't winning enough points with the backhand to be regarded as a Tempo player. With a single-handed and using the backhand slice a lot, he didn't have the characteristic of a Tempo player at all.

Offensive Player

Very high

Yannick Noah was a serve & volleyer which is part of the Offensive player. 60% of his total points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is far above the average of the ATP players. Besides playing the serve & volley (40% of this total points) Yannick Noah also used the 1-2 punch approach, the baseline approcha and the return volley (these three represented 20% of this total points won). At the net, he had an excellent volley with a ratio of 78% of his volley making the points against 22% of volley errors.

Retriever

Medium-low

From the back of the court, Yannick Noah was more a Retriever than a Puncher or a Tempo player. His goal was to charge the net as soon as he could but he sometimes had to put back in play several balls before doing so. In that regard, he was a Retriever.
