Henri Laaksonen's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium-low

Henri Laaksonen cannot be qualified as a Server because most of his Serve stats are just below average. Nonetheless, he can still win points with his Serve but not consistantly enough to really count on this shot to win matches on a regular basis.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

High

Henri Laaksonen is a dominant Puncher. When compared with his rivals he makes 30% more points but also 40% more errors than them with the forehand. From the back of the court most of the action come from that side and in total 26% of his points are won with the forehand (far above the general average of the ATP players).

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Medium-high

Henri Laaksonen is not only a Puncher but also a Tempo player. He actually plays his Punching forehand in a Tempo way. It means that he hits that shot rather flat and close to his baseline. Besides, like the Tempo players he can win points taking the ball on the rise with his return or his backhand.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Low

Winning only 10% of his points at the net (with or without a volley to play) Henri Laaksonen cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. Generally he prefers to take risks from the back of the court than to come in. Besides, his volley quality is below average.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Medium

To complete his baseline game, Henri Laaksonen can also Retrieve. In total, 42% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result stands in the average. However, making on average more points & errors than his opponents with the forehand and the backhand he is more a Puncher or Tempo player than a Retriever.
