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

Jose-Luis Clerc was a dominant Puncher. He could attack on both sides but it was with the forehand that he was the most effective. He made on average two times more points with that shot than his rivals. He also used the forehand to come in, we can say that he was a Puncher/Offensive.

Puncher / High

For a clay court specialist, Jose-Luis Clerc could count on an effective first serve. His first serve ratio of unreturned was 33% and he made on average 50% more aces/service winners than his rivals. 

Serve / Medium-high

Playing with topspin on both side, Jose-Luis Clerc can't be regarded as a Tempo player at all. Tempo players play close to the baseline and take the ball on the rise and this wasn't his case.  

Tempo / Low

Jose-Luis Clerc's game style was to Punch from the back of the court and move forward with the forehand when he had a chance. In total, 29% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stand above average. 

Offensive / Medium-high

From the back of the court Jose-Luis Clerc was more a Puncher than a Retriever. But as a clay court specialist he could also extend the baseline rallies and be effective this way. 

Retriever / Medium
