Compare his Stats with the ones of the Other Australian Players here

Pat Cash was a serve & volleyer (Offensive) and 57% of his total points were won playing that game style. On the return games, he came in as soon as he had a chance and like that he won 59% of the points with the baseline approach and 59% when chip & charging. At the net his ratio points/errors with the volley was excellent (74%).

Offensive / Very High

Pat Cash can't be regarded as a Puncher at all because his ratio of points won with the forehand or the single-handed backhand was far below average. However, his game style from the back of the court was still more the one of a Puncher than a Tempo player or a Retriever.

Puncher / Low

Only 35% of Pat Cash's points were won by the errors of his rival. His goal was to charge the net and he never really waited for his rivals to make mistakes. 

Retriever / Very low

As a serve & volleyer, Pat Cash could also count on an effective first serve. When his first serve was in, 34% of the time it was unreturned. When compared with his rivals, he made on average 2 times more aces/service winners than them. The way he blocked the rivals' first serves also influenced this comparison stats because he received less aces/service winners than average. 

Server / High

Pat Cash was nothing but a Temp player. His ratio of points won with the single-handed backhand was very low and he often preferred to play the slice on that side. The Tempo players like to take the ball on the rise, are aggressive with the backhand and the return and most of the time possess a two-handed backhand.

Tempo / Very low
